THE KEMBATA-TEMBARO LITERACY INITIATIVE

 

In 2011, the Tesfa Foundation, with support from Ethiopia Reads, built a primary school in the Kololo area of Kembata-Tembaro, opening for students in fall of 2012. Ethiopia Reads is now setting out to build a community library and five new learning centers for children in the Kembata-Tembaro region of Ethiopia over the next three years. Ongoing community assessments and conversations with local families are pointing to a huge need for kindergarten and library resources in order to turn learning into a life-changing experience for rural Ethiopian children. News spaces, professional development for educators, books and other literacy materials (in both English and local languages) will support young learners in a country where most children learn to ready by rote and pointing to letters on a chart, but have no books to read. In the next three years, we can change that reality. Join us! Readers are tomorrow's leaders in Ethiopia.
