Awake & Alive provides education and economic empowerment for children and their families to transform lives and communities in Ethiopia.

What We Do

Awake & Alive has partnered with Bright Future, an Ethiopian nonprofit organization, to open Bright Future Academy which now serves 68 of the most marginalized children in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

The all-Ethiopian staff provides full educational services for the 4 to 7-year-old children, a large majority of which are orphans or half-orphans (one parent deceased). In addition, the Academy provides 2 meals a day for the students and general health education for their parent(s).

We’re excited about our plan to acquire a new facility to expand into grades 1-4 and further our impact on the Kechene community.

Change a life today

You can join us today to change the life of a child. Without Awake & Alive’s supporters, the children of Kechene would not be receiving the education and tools needed to break the cycle of poverty.
