Exeter Ethiopia Link is committed to supporting education in Nekemte from early years through to university level. Our previous fundraising campaigns - The Year of the Librarian and The Year of the Girl – provided vital support for students and teachers in Nekemte and surrounding areas and this year we are focusing on the relationship between literacy and education by launching The Year of Reading.
By providing books and supporting librarians, children of all ages will have the chance to become better readers. Some will enjoy reading just for the sake of it, for many it will give them improved skills to follow written instructions, read signs and notices and enhance their employability, but most of all, improved reading skills will underpin overall educational achievement.
Further details of fund raising activities will follow.
