Yesterday during each lunch period, our Student Council informed all the boys of exciting news: The school has reached (exceeded) our Dollars for Ethiopia Scholars fundraising goal and has raised more than $112,000 to date.
But our boys aren't finished! They will continue to hold fundraising activities for the remainder of the school year, including a t-shirt sale with a design created by one of our boys (see photo), in support of the project.
We reported last month as construction began on the school in Tigray, Ethiopia, due to open in September. By surpassing our goal and continuing our fundraising, we will be able to not only completely build the school and provide it with much needed resources, but also construct an early childhood center.
