Celebrations at the Ethiopian Fitawrari Public School

December 16, 2010 No Comments

The recent celebration at the Fitawrari School in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia was attended by the leaders of many of Akaki Kaliti’s most important organizations: the Kebeles, the city council, and the heads of all the primary schools. They came to see and better understand the school’s project for feeding the children. This is the primary school where Mediterranea constructed a dining room, kitchen, and serves breakfast to all the 160 pre-school children along with breakfast, lunch and tea to the 103 orphans who attend the school.

A few happy children in their newly donated school uniforms.

The dignitaries also inaugurated the Information Technology Center which was equipped with computers donated and purchased by Mediterranea.

They then proceeded to deliver uniforms bought with money provided by Mediterranea. The donation of 24000 birrs ($1460 US) served to purchase the uniforms and also the school materials for the current year.

The authorities and school directors, in addition to visiting the dining room and kitchen, also had the chance to see the entrance road, new toilets and playground, all of which were paid for and constructed by Mediterranea.

The saddest part of this happy day was saying goodbye to the two assistant directors of the school. One of who was taking up the position as director of another school and the other as supervisor for all of the primary schools in Akaki. Congratulations and much success to both of them!
