Abebe Bikila High School, Sirti


Our first visit to the High School produced a huge amount of interest, with the best English-speaking students eager to tell us about their school’s needs.


These are some sets of textbooks purchased after our first visit.


We bought the school its first student computers. Before this, they would study IT by reading books, with no way of practicing skills.


The new science teaching block. The Head Teacher asked us to help buy the equipment needed to teach science as a practical subject.


The very articulate Head Boy presented photos of Lawley House reps, before we handed over some sports equipment.

Church Stretton Secondary School

Lawley House, at Church Stretton Secondary School, adopted SHEPEthiopa as one of its charities in September 2014.

Since then the pupils have been busy baking cakes to sell on three separate occasions.

Their partner school is the Abebe Bikila High School in Sirti (Jidda’s only town). This school has been supplied with its first two computers and lots of essential text books.

They are very keen to have help to equip their newly built science labs with some basic practical science equipment.



SHEPEthiopia is a working name for the "Support for Health and Education Projects in Ethiopia", UK charity No. 1161261
