P2P Education Mission
People To People (P2P) Education Mission has embarked to start rebuilding schools in Amhara and Afar regions that were damaged in the recent conflicts.
As many of you are aware, the recent tragic internal conflict in Ethiopia has impacted the lives of millions of innocent civilians and have had profound effects at many different levels, including destruction and severely damaging the existing infrastructure and leaving the country in an unprecedented state of despair and tragedy. Sadly, more than 7,000 schools in the Afar and Amhara regions of Ethiopia were destroyed and damaged. As a result, in the Afar and Amhara regions alone, more than 1.42 million students are out of school and missing education; children can’t afford another year of school disruption.
We believe that through the collective efforts of Ethiopians around the world we can help rebuild these communities and provide support.
At People to People, we are humbled by the wave of inspired, dedicated, and motivated people who have contacted us willing to serve those in need. Several medical missions from the Ethiopian diaspora community have been deployed and are traveling monthly to serve different regions affected by the turmoil at their own expense. Now it is time for a new mission which is to rebuild at least 10 schools: 3 Afar and 7 in the Amhara region. Join us and help make a real difference in the lives of the affected communities and students and to transform these schools into an effective & dynamic learning environment.
