Building bright futures- Tsadiku

£3,503 of £625,000 goal

Raised by 12 people in 4 months
Tsadiku Yohannes school in Gondar, Ethiopia, is an incredible institution that recently celebrated its 75th anniversary.  Over the 75 years, the school has become a place of learning, growth and nurturing for many young people. 

In it's 75 years, the building has experienced  a lot of wear and tear and it has unfortunately impacted the safety and learning of the students.

The school  is doing incredible work within the community and enrolls students from all backgrounds and abilities.

At present it runs a feeding programme that ensures all students receive two meals a day. This is very sadly not always available for the students at home and many who attend the school come from families who do not have the capacity to provide for their children. These wider issues are more complex, but Tsadiku Yohannes provides a safe haven for these young people, who are able to be nourished, mentally and physically at school. 

Due to the building having not been modernised and the intake of students increasing gradually over time, the facilities are outdated and inadequate. At present there are 50 students per classroom, this is above the health and safety limit and has a detrimental impact on the students learning and safety. Many classrooms in the school are missing basic things such as table and chairs. This means there is a need for both new classrooms to be built and new trained staff to be hired, to meet the needs of the students. 

Tsadiku Yohannes also support the learning of 139 students who have tragically been orphaned. The student body is also made up of 141 students who are fatherless, 140 who are motherless and 24 students are taking medicine for HIV.  There are 9 students  with epilepsy and 186 deaf and blind students, who have specialist teachers on site to support them, at present, however, there are not enough to ensure there is individual  attention for each student. Tsadiku Yohannes is the only school in the area providing provisions for these children.  

The student body is made up of: 100      (4-6 year olds)
                                                                         2000 (7-17 year olds)
850 of the students have special educational needs. 

The work Tsadiku Yohannes school is doing is invaluable. It is a beacon of hope in Gondar and Ethiopia at large. It is run by passionate educational practitioners who are working tirelessly to help raise enough funds for their new state of the art school building. The new building will ensure there is adequate classroom space and facilities; an IT room, a library, laboratory, and modern toilets. Funds raised will also go into recruiting trained specialist educational teachers. 
The school has already begun fundraising within Ethiopia, but we are looking for support from those around the world who are passionate about empowering our youth, education and development. 
The school also has a number of alumni around the world who have graduated from Tsadiku Yohannes and gone on to do wonderful work in a variety of industries and fields. We hope to strengthen these ties through the fundraising and get the school connected to the wider community. 


Any amount that is donated for this cause is valuable. As funds are accumulated there will be an update on the website (link below) and the GoFundme page on the progress of construction.

Please know that any donation (no amount is too small) is whole heartedly appreciated and is going to such a worthwhile cause. 

In Birr we aim to raise 20 million birr to complete the project.
At present we have raised 2 million birr from Ethiopia and through the diaspora. 


Thank you for your time. Let's get this school built!
