How does our student sponsorship work?.. If you sponsor a student, that student's family head (if under 16) either collects that full amount of money you donate on a monthly or bi-monthly basis from our office in Mekelle City.. If they live faraway, the money is sent by bank transfer to their nearest bank.. Once the student is 16, if the family agree, the student takes their own responsibility for their money.. This way they learn the value of money and how to budget it.. All government education is fee free but students needs money for books, shoes, uniforms and in cities transport..

Some failed for the second time to get promoted and were ineligible to continue at school, some moved away, some dropped out of their own accord..

    Descriptive info: Introduction - a child's right to free primary education.. Ethiopian Educational System.. Future School Projects.. Ethiopian school registrations and capacities.. Metego Full Elementary School #10.. Ziban Albe Full Elementary School #9.. Abinet Church School #7.. Adiba'ekel Full Elementary School #6.. Hagere Selam Full Elementary School #5.. Dansa Full Elementary School #3.. Adihana Full Elementary School #2.. Aderak Full Elementary School #1.. Computer Training Centres.. From the 1934 International Conference on Education to the possibly ill judged Millennium Development Goals, every child's right to free primary education has been universally endorsed.. It is well known that education is the salvation of struggling societies - beyond providing a well spring of knowledge - brings with it the best chance of defeating poverty, better parenting, better health, better nutrition, greater opportunity and a direct line to economic growth.. From the UN to the World Bank it is agreed that free universal primary education is the ultimate measure of human progress.. A-CET's support for rural community elermentary schools in the Tigray Region of Ethiopia.. All village schools are the natural hub of the community and the vehicle through which information and a variety of support can be channeled..  ...   to build their own schools with the Government assuring trained teachers.. This has left many of these new schools very basic and poorly equipped - often just walls and a roof with the children sitting on stones.. The corner stone of A-CET's project work in Ethiopia has been the upgrading of these village community built schools.. Throughout all our support work we work with the local education authorities and the communities.. Our work is to enable these communities to complete and upgrade their schools.. These communities are comprised of largely uneducated peasant farmers living on the extreme margins of existence, but are aware of the value of education.. Supporting these schools has a very positive effect on all villages and has the potential to change lives for hundreds of youngsters for many decades to come.. A-CET does not involve ourselves with any other sectoral work other than education.. We believe we should do what we do best, educational support.. Whilst recognizing their importance, we do not involve ourselves in health, re-afforestration or water.. Other organizations are best able to support these sectors.. Location of all schools..

    Descriptive info: African Children's Educational Trust.. Spring 2014 newsletter.. Six new cultural dancers for EYES Circus.. Young men Goytom, Kibrom Ashenafi with young ladies Helen, Genet Rigiat are all senior students who have been dancing together for five years, reaching high standards in all Ethiopian cultural dances.. We are proud that they have joined our Circus, Band Cultural Dance Troupe and we believe it is very important that we help keep alive this important part of Ethiopia's cultural heritage.. A-CET/EYES supports the voluntary circus group of forty plus students with premises, equipment, costumes and logistical back-up; but all their training and shows are on their own initiative.. With little else to do in Mekelle except football (EYES has two youth teams) or cycling, circus is very popular.. In addition to physical fitness it inculcates a sense of team-work and belonging, whilst giving them all a great sense of achievement and self-confidence.. Whilst A-CET/EYES is primarily an educational support charity, over twenty of our ex-students, after having completed minimally Grade 10, have performed overseas in Europe, the USA and on cruise ships - certainly their overseas remittances contribute to Ethiopia's income.. With graduating students and those going overseas the Circus members are constantly needing new entrants.. Student profiles.. Yared Tekeste.. High scoring ever cheerful 13 year old student Yared together with many others, takes his National Grade 8examination in June 2014 for promotion to Secondary School..

EYES has made some great achievements in the ten years since its registration.. Building and furnishing ten high quality elementary eight grade community oriented schools in remote villages bringing free places to over 10,000 students where before few existed is significant in itself.. But with over 200 scholarship students graduating, EYES now can boast a wide variety of highly competent youngsters in high-profile positions all contributing towards Ethiopian development: Scientific Researchers, Medical Doctors, Veterinarian Doctors, Nurses, Pharmacists, Teachers, University Tutors, Architects, Civil, Electrical, Computer Mechanical Engineers, Systems Analysts, IT personnel, Economists, Accountants, Drivers, Mechanics, Construction workers, Carpenters, Plumbers, Painters, Artists, Musicians - the list is endless..

  • Title: A-CET newsletter
    Descriptive info: Summer 2013 newsletter.. Metego Full Elementary School.. September 2013 will see us open our ninth school at Metego about 10 miles north of our local base in Mekele City.. It is replacing a temporary Grade 4 Junior school that is now dangerously close to a recently upgraded main road.. All our schools are built in cooperation with the local Bureau of Education who provide the teachers and material and are built with paid community labour who are involved in the project.. All our projects stress community participation, a sense of ownership and future sustainability.. Metego will have FREE places for 800 students from Grades 1 to 8 in two shifts.. A-CET through local partner EYES built its first rural elementary school in 2006 and we have now built and furnished country elementary schools with places for six thousand youngsters where before few places existed.. All our schools have either mains or solar electricity for “extension” (evening) shifts for those unable to attend during the day due to farm work.. Class sizes are about 50 and all our schools have a library.. All schools have dry latrines.. School access to pump water is provided by other local specialist water charities.. Funds are still needed to complete some of the building work and for the mains electricity transformer and installation.. 449 Yeabsra Gebremedhin.. 15 months ago a thin malnourished ragged and downcast little boy used to “watch” our car as we took lunch.. The car was safe so eventually he joined us for lunch.. Through other students we found out that he was born in the North West near Gondar, had then lived for a year in the capital Addis Abeba and in 2010/11 had come to Mekelle - effectively travelling over thousands of miles and now in a region with even a different language.. He said he was about 12 or 13.. Eventually we found out that his mother had re-married and, as is often the case, he was or felt “unwanted” by the new stepfather.. Through Social Services he was accepted for an EYES scholarship.. In Sept 2012 he was given a rented furnished room and admitted to Grade 2 at the Church School (just opposite our local office).. He promised us  ...   now competing as under 16s.. Not only did the under 14's win their cup but also Haftom was awarded “Top Coach” (the youngest) and was selected to attend a special football coaching course.. Of particular note is that Haftom did all this voluntarily and entirely on his own initiative organizing over fifty boys who became actively engaged in a sport they love whilst developing a high morale and team spirit.. Materially A-CET/EYES only provided the teams’s strip and footballs, but probably more importantly created that positive environment to help develop and encourage these initiatives.. Haftom, now 16, lives with his grandmother and is awaiting his National Grade 10 results prior to college.. [The Mekelle City Youth League has well over forty competing teams, many well established and supported by well-endowed commercial organizations.. EYES are very much the ”new kids on the block”].. A-CET CEO/Chair is honoured by Mekelle University.. For the first time in Mekelle University’s 21 year history, it conferred honorary doctorates and David Stables was one of only three candidates to be so awarded.. On 7th July 2013 at a ceremony when nearly 5,000 graduates received their degrees, David was awarded a “Doctorate in Community Services”, fittingly with whom he has been working for 21 years.. (Four with the Red Cross and 17 with A-CET).. “A great honour and a great responsibility” said David who said he “accepted it on behalf of all his students, past and present”.. After 10 years as our student and five years at Adama University, Nazret; disabled Kokob graduates as an Architect with a GPA of 3.. 43.. He has been appointed as a tutor at Addis Abeba University next year.. Our congratulations for his hard work and perseverance.. Scott Sherman of.. www.. bookrescuers.. com.. has been supporting A-CET since 2006.. In our last financial year they have donated over £20,000 to us.. Seen here with Trustees Dr Sammy Ayalew, Dame Dr Claire Bertschinger, Scott Sherman and Chairman David Stables.. 16 year old Grade 10 students Meron Haftom, winning at the National Gymnastic Championships in Addis Abeba March 2013 with Rufael Assefa, our Liaison Officer..

    Descriptive info: Christmas 2012 newsletter.. Merry Christmas.. A recent survey.. stated that donors were put off donating to charities because they were “not clear about what they did”, “too little money went on the cause”, “too much spent on staff salaries”, “fund raisers were too persistent and intrusive”.. At A-CET we claim a loud not guilty to any of these donor concerns.. In these tough financial times we are getting fewer donations.. We will soon start building our eighth village elementary school in Ethiopia bringing closer, easier access to free education in quality buildings.. We need your help.. 2012 Magazine and accounts..

A-CET, through its local charity partner Ethiopian Youth Educational Support (EYES), has built, furnished and installed electricity in eight village community full elementary schools Grades 1  ...   has a further 200 students on full long-term scholarships, a third of whom are now already in tertiary/higher education.. All our students are orphans, the abandoned or disabled and selected for their needs.. Without our help none would be able to continue their education.. At the celebration, academic prizes were awarded by Guest of Honour and long term supporter Mr Marco Oehlenschalger, Rector of Coornhert Gymnasium at Gouda in the Netherlands.. These awards went to over 20 high achieving students for the academic years 2010/11 and 2011/12.. Over half the award winners are registered disabled.. After the presentation an entertainment, including cultrural dancing and acrobatics, was provided by the ever verstaltile, vibrant EYES Circus & Band, a voluntary group composed of 40 of EYES full-time students resident in Mekelle City where we are based..

    Descriptive info: New Year 2012 newsletter.. A big thank you to all our supporters and followers.. With your unfailing and continuing help we have had a really successful year, helping thousands of Ethiopian youngsters to improve their lives and futures in a very positive way.. Thanks again.. EYES Band Circus perform for all Mekelle at the special request of the Mayor.. EYES - A-CET's Ethiopian partner charity - has a fifty member Circus and Band composed of full-time or graduated students from 12 up to 25 years old.. EYES Circus is a totally voluntary and self-selected group.. Whilst A-CET/EYES provides them with rehearsal facilities, logistical backup, costumes and equipment with general managerial guidance; the shows they put on are theirs entirely.. They rehearse five nights a week and often at weekends and perform freely on demand for the public.. They aim to reach as wide and diverse an audience as possible.. Together the circus and band members learn so much in discipline, reliability, team-work, co-ordination and above all, they have fun.. Certainly their confidence and self-esteem grows by leaps and bounds and we are proud of their performances.. The circus and band gave two public performances in December 2011 in a packed Mekelle main square for both Cities and Nations Nationalities weeks - at which Mekelle won the “Best City in Ethiopia”.. Our last show was for over three hours and attended by thousands - the traffic in Mekelle city certainly stopped that night! Mekelle still has little public entertainment.. The circus and band help to bring joy and happiness to thousands.. And they all now know of the importance of education in their lives.. Amanuel's story.. Amanuel is 16 years  ...   region of Tigray, she was unable to re-gain her place at a Government University.. Recommended to us by Social Services as an especial deserving case, she is now studying to be a Health Officer at a private university in Mekelle as an A-CET student..

It comprises over 20 new classrooms plus a designated 25 station solar powered co0mputer training laboratory.. Ziban Albe has over 1,200 students from Grades 0 to 8 and the entire Hiwane community are very excited as they see the buildings go up.. “It’s like a new city” said one of them..
