West Sands Adoptions Ethiopia School Projects
West Sands Adoptions Builds a School
West Sands Adoptions is proud to announce the commencement of construction of a new school in Addis Ababa. We are honored to receive land from the City of Addis Ababa, to build a school for the children of this community. On January 2nd, 2011 West Sands Adoptions Ethiopian Director, Woudneh Mulugeta, signed an agreement with the City of Addis Ababa, Akaki Kality Sub-City Economy and Finance Development Office, to begin construction of a school on property designated by the City. Located adjacent to our Transitional home, this school will admit up to 200 students from the local community and provide education to children in need. Families who travel to Ethiopia and stay at our Guest House will have the opportunity to visit the children at this school.
SCHOOL NEARS COMPLETION
As of January 2013, construction of the school funded by West Sands Adoptions is almost complete. It is hard for us to believe that 2 years has passed, and our first school is almost completed. We look forward to seeing these classrooms filled with children, and to watch them grow and proper into amazing citizens of this beautiful country. It is our hope that this school will enhance the future of 200 children’s lives each year. Many thanks to Woudneh Mulugeta for all his hard work, and Dedication. Woudneh’s heart for the children of Ethiopia can be witnessed again on the grounds of this new school.
West Sands Adoptions is committed to engage in Humanitarian Aid Projects in Ethiopia. Currently our commitment to this amazing country is the construction of this new school. If you are adopting from Ethiopia through West Sands Adoptions, a portion of your adoption foreign fee is also used for humanitarian efforts in Ethiopia. Together West Sands Adoptions and Adoptive Families have, and will continue, to support the local communities in Ethiopia. If you adopted from Ethiopia in 2011 or 2012, you contributed to the commencement of this school. In 2013 West Sands Adoptions will begin a new humanitarian project in Ethiopia. If you are interested in supporting this school further with West Sands Adoptions, school supplies, computers and other items are needed. Thank you!
