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 35 of the most marginalized children in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
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 2 meals a day for the students and general health education for their parent(s). 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 35 more children and continue to provide the tools these children need to break the cycle of poverty.
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.
Whether it’s a child sponsorship, donation, or student fundraiser, we’re excited for you to join us! Awake & Alive is a tax exempt, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and all donations are tax deductible.
