These school buildings were brand new in 2013. The previous buildings fell down in strong winds the year before.
The maths text books would look very familiar to English primary children, but the complete lack of any practical equipment would feel very odd indeed.
Teachers make their own charts and teaching resources, usually drawn on a sheet fixed between two sticks.
This village Elder accepts gifts of desks for their school.
Sports equipment always goes down well with the children. Football is a very popular game, played by girls as well as boys.
Stokesay’s children made up games and sold cakes, raising a big sum to go towards a new toilet for Arabsa Chifara School.
Stokesay Primary School
Stokesay Primary School first found out about SHEPEthiopia in the Spring term 2015.
The children did a brilliant job in their Stokesay’s Got Talent event in July 2015 and raised a lot of money for their partner school, Arabsa Chifara School, which has already received lots of new desks.
Hopefully will soon have its first toilet block on the school premises, funded by the charity.
SHEPEthiopia is a working name for the "Support for Health and Education Projects in Ethiopia", UK charity No. 1161261
