October 11th is International Day of the Girl. In honor of this day, WEEMA International is announcing a new pilot project to help girls stay in school.
WEEMA is expanding its Women's Self Help Groups to Hadero-Tunto.
WEEMA partnered with our friends at Ready Set Go Books to deliver ten different easer reader stories to Ethiopian schools and libraries.
Learn about WEEMA's WASH Project, soon to be implemented in two schools and three public spaces!
Keleta High School is now expanding to include 11th and 12th grade!
For years, Keleta had only 9th and 10th grade at its secondary school. In order to finish 11th and 12th grades, students from this rural village needed to rent rooms away from home in Mudula town order to finish their high school education. Now Ethiopia's Southern Region Educational Department has given the community permission to add 11th and 12th grades to its school- but only if certain criteria are met. This a really BIG deal!
In order to meet these criteria, the community needed to raise money. They came together and hosted a community day where people donated whatever they could such a agricultural goods, livestock, etc. And they did it! Criteria met!
WEEMA is honored to play its part in this community effort and will help with the construction of a new library and computer center.
Happy Studying, Keleta Kids! One step closer to University...
