  • 4. 4 19.12.2013 Challenges in Education     Cost: some families cannot afford school uniforms, pens, notebooks and text books Distance: some children live too far from their nearest school. Capacity: there are not enough schools for everyone to attend. Health: sickness and disease keeps children from going to school. Link Ethiopia - Support in Education
  • 5. 5 19.12.2013 Link Ethiopia - Vision   Link Ethiopia’s vision is an equal and just world in which poverty and social injustice are eradicated and basic human rights and a decent quality of life are assured. In our interconnected global society, we are all responsible for our actions and our common wellbeing. We believe education is a vital tool to promote understanding and give disadvantaged children the tools to achieve their full potential as tomorrow’s global citizens. Link Ethiopia - Support in Education
  • 6. 6 19.12.2013 Link Ethiopia - Mission  Providing access to quality education for children aged 7-18 in Ethiopia, with the broader aim of empowering people to lift themselves and their communities out of poverty.  Fostering positive communication and interaction between people of different cultures in order to raise awareness of similarities, shared goals and our global interdependence. Link Ethiopia - Support in Education
  • 7. 7 19.12.2013 Link Ethiopia- Doings  School Links   Gap Scheme   set up, support and help manage links between U.K. schools and schools in Ethiopia, in both the primary and secondary sectors offer three-month Gap Ethiopia teaching placements to preuniversity students. Our volunteers are accommodated by local families and teach English Communication Skills at secondary school level. Resourcing Projects  schools we work with in Ethiopia are severely under-resourced. We therefore aim to assist schools in identifying, implementing and managing projects to improve the quality of the schooling they offer. This may involve basic necessities such as clean running water, adequate classrooms, the training of teachers in computer skills, or the management of libraries in larger schools.

  • 11. 11 19.12.2013 Tokumma Geography and Economy    West Shoa zone of Oromia Regional State in Ethiopia. The school’s catchment area is about 35 km2 (City of Bern 51.6 km2) with a population of about 3,000. The source of income in the area is largely traditional farming and animal rearing. The area does not have proper modern infrastructure including road, electricity, potable water and health facility. Link Ethiopia - Support in Education

  • 14. 14 19.12.2013 Tokumma Elementary School – new library   2012, the Tokumma school enjoyed the benefits of a joint British & Foreign School Society (BFSS) project which helped expand the school to accommodate over 150 extra pupils in three new classrooms. It also constructed a new library – a hugely important source of information and education for the children and local community – which can serve up to 40 pupils at a time! Link Ethiopia - Support in Education
  • 15. 15 19.12.2013 Tokumma Elementary School Solar Power   As well as this brilliant expansion in the school’s capacity, this BFSS-funded project, coordinated with Link Ethiopia, also funded the installation of a solar-powered electricity system, which provides clean, sustainable energy to classrooms. This has allowed the school – in a village with no electricity connection – to provide lighting to classrooms and to power radios! Link Ethiopia - Support in Education
  • 16. 16 19.12.2013 Tokumma Elementary School Solar powered IT Centre   Link Ethiopia’s new project at the school, once again in cooperation with the BFSS and with generous help from our Swiss donor Christian Sailer and the Gymnasium Kirchenfeld, will create a solar-powered IT centre at the school, and one which will be connected to the internet! This will be a huge improvement in the educational opportunities that Tokumma school can provide to their pupils. Link Ethiopia - Support in Education
  • 17. 17 19.12.2013 Background Education in Tokumma  The main reason why education has marginal impact (if any) on development in rural Ethiopia is because of absence of linkage between education and community needs.   School curriculum in Ethiopia is focused on development of academic and reading skills. However, there are neither books nor newspapers in a typical village. There is no life skill training targeted to improving productivity of agricultural labour and land, personal hygiene or the environment.  Tokumma reflects the situation in a typical rural village in Ethiopia: There is virtually no non-farm employment.
