Transforming our children’s future

At The School of St Yared, we provide an excellent education to talented, impoverished children from the poorest suburbs of Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia. Our goal is to empower our students to break free from poverty and to become future leaders in their communities.

Our approach to education is transforming their lives. Our students often outperform their peers at private schools both academically and on the sports field. Outside of school, they are becoming agents of change for their community.

Help us Fight Poverty through Education

Give an Ethiopian child living in extreme poverty an education, and you will change the course of their life and the lives of their families forever.

Unlike most children in Ethiopia, our students have a completely free education thanks to the generosity of our wider St Yared’s community.

For less than the cost of a cup of coffee, about $4 per day, you can change the life and future of one of these children!

The more sponsors we have and the more donations we receive, the more places we can offer. Join us today and find out how you can make a donation or sponsor a child!
