Global Grant for Basic Education and Literacy/Economic and Community Development in Southern Ethiopia

Submitted by: Cecelia Babkirk, Rotary eClub of Silicon Valley

Project Owner: Rotary eClub of Silicon Valley

Project Description:

This project is two-fold:

Support the local primary and secondary schools in Soda, Ethiopia, where I served as a Peace Corps Volunteer and in which a quality education is sadly lacking.

Support economic and community development initiatives to bring new businesses and jobs to the community, in which 60% of the population is under the age of 30 and most students, upon graduation from secondary school have no education or job prospects. These will be locally and culturally appropriate initiatives.
