The 2012-2013 school year is a time of big dreams and big steps for literacy in Ethiopia.  Here are some of the programs Ethiopia Reads is working on now:

  • We are finishing off a project to plant one model school library in each region of Ethiopia and a new school library for coffee-growing families.
  • We are launching an initiative to create seven school learning centers in the Kembata-Tembaro region.
  • We are conducting pilot projects for community libraries in the Merkato region of Addis Ababa and in the towns of Dukum and Awassa.
  • We are launching a new professional development effort for Ethiopian educators in all of the sixty + libraries and several schools we have planted in the past 7-8 years.
