Awake & Alive provides education and economic empowerment for children and their families to transform lives and communities in Ethiopia.
Meet the students
In 2012 Awake & Alive partnered with Bright Future, an Ethiopian nonprofit organization, to open a school called Bright Future Academy to serve 35 of the most marginalized children in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
Currently, the all-Ethiopian staff provides full educational services for the 4, 5, and 6-year-old children, a large majority of which are orphans or half-orphans (one parent deceased). In addition, the Academy provides meals for the children and general health education for the parent(s) of the students. Opening Bright Future Academy has been no small feat, but Awake & Alive has much bigger dreams for the people of Kechene and beyond.
For the 2013-2014 school year, the Academy will welcome 30 more children as we continue to provide the tools these children need to break the cycle of poverty. You can join us today to change the life of a child.
