PROJECT

One Day, One school in Ethiopia – Auxilium Catholic School

Although the kindergarten was already built thanks to funds from the Association ‘Un Amico in Etiopia ONLUS’ it was necessary to build another floor for the second year. Equally, there were no external toilet for kindergarten and elementary school students. All these works were performed and completed during 2011. However, the main activity in this year was the completion of the building of the four storey building of the primary school (grade 1-8).

REASONS TO TAKE ACTION
New Flower in Africa from the beginning has supported this project with the idea of overcoming disparities funding the spread of knowledge, information and best practices alongside a formal education for all the children and young people of the Bole Bulbula district. In particular, this collaboration with the work of the Salesian Sisters represents the desire to empower women and young people living in poverty to have access to alphabetisation, formal education, higher grades of secondary schools and therefore universities.
DIRECT AND INDIRECT BENEFICIARIES

In 2016, the number of children attending the kindergarten is around 200, divided into two classes of 50 students per each of 2 years of kindergarten. Elementary school students are about 600. In total the children attending the school are 800. Current teachers of elementary school are 23. The indirect beneficiaries of the project are about 3.000.

In the future, when the pupils continuing their studies will reach the grade 8 conclusive of the primary school the number of primary students will be around 800. To them it will be added the 200 children of the kindergarten and the 400 high school students.

COUNTRY

Bole Bulbula district, where the New Flower in Africa project is located, is a peripheral area in great expansion. In few years the villages, meadows, small crops and pastures for goats were dumped from huge modern buildings and several shops. Although in this area is still predominantly inhabited by poor families living in small huts, is gradually rising a rich community involved in a process of urbanization.
