Overview

Self-reported by organization

The Tesfa Foundation has opened six schools to date. Each of them has a different profile. All address the severe needs of the very young and the poor. Our first school is the Tsegereda Memorial School in Addis Ababa, opened in October, 2004. It is named ‘Tsegereda’ in memory of Leeza Woubshet(http://www.tesfa.org/whoweare_history.html)

Program 1

Early Childhood Education

The Tesfa Foundation funds early childhood education for disadvantaged children in Ethiopia, where no public pre-school or kindergarten is available. 
Six schools founded with Tesfa support in Ethiopian cities, towns and villages have served nearly 1,000 needy children in 2009. Tesfa schools have sister schools in the US and UK, and partner with local agencies to help the parents and communities of our children. With its partner athletic program, Team Tesfa, the Tesfa Foundation offers safety, education, and hope to teenage girls at risk.

Funding Needs

We are asking you to please spread the word about Tesfa’s 2009 Holiday Sponsorship Drive. Our schools are supported by the generous donations of child sponsors. For $21 per month, a sponsor funds one child’s education, and gets to learn directly about the lives of children in one of the world’s poorest nations. The child sponsored would not be in school without our help
