Help Keep The Doors of the Awassa Reading Center Open!

The Awassa Reading Center is a rare public library full of eager, young readers in southern Ethiopia. Its purpose is to create a safe, inviting and resource-rich reading space for children in a place where many have never held a book. Donations have fueled this library for seven years, and we hope to keep it going for many more.

Our Hearts Are With The Community Of Newtown, CT.

We all at Ethiopia Reads send our love and thoughts to the families and friends of those directly affected by the incident in Connecticut. Centers of education the world round can be magical places that inspire and ignite a spark that can one day change the world. As concerned parents, educators, students, politicians, citizens, let us walk away from the blame game’s and come together to ensure that our children are safe in and outside of our schools.

Town of Runners

I visited Ethiopia in the summer of 2011. What an amazing adventure! I was enamored with the coffee ceremony. I was intrigued by Meskel Square in Addis Ababa, where runners gather to train. And I was blown away by the literacy work of Ethiopia Reads and determined to continue to support their mission.

Same mission... Stronger umbrella. The Tesfa Foundation is joining Ethiopia Reads.

In 2010, Dana Roskey, founder of the Tesfa Foundation did an assessment of Ethiopia Reads programs, creating a report for the board of directors about which projects were working well and which projects could use re-design or changes. The board was impressed by Dana's thoughtful suggestions and his thrifty ways—taking the public bus to Awassa when needed for instance—and his willingness to spend many hours talking with officials, donors, and with people in local Ethiopian communities to craft individual projects that fit local circumstances and opportunities.
