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.

Help plant a library at the Logiya Primary School in the Afar Region - home of Lucy!

A Logiya library could be a reality with your support!

Logiya is a town located in the Afar region of Ethiopia. A promising school in Logiya was selected to participate in a program that partners Ethiopia's Ministry of Education, USAID and Ethiopia Reads. With $10,000, a new library with books, shelving and librarian training will give children the chance to read!

Here are a few images of the school. Please read further down for a letter from the Afar Forum.
