EQUIP International has been rescuing impoverished children in Ethiopia for over 8 years. In 2013 we established our first elementary school in Nekemte with 60 children. Our school has grown to over 200 children and has received the coveted “Award of Excellence” from the Minister of Education.
Our school deliberately reaches out to the most desperate and needy children of Ethiopia. Most children in our school come from households with income of less than $6. per month.
In the fall of 2015 we opened a new facility in the heart of Nekemte, with capacity for expansion to over 400 children.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors we have been able to provide superb facilities and excellent education to our children in Ethiopia.
Some donors prefer to sponsor children and others like to donate for buildings, equipment, or real estate.
Some of our donors like to visit the our projects. You are welcome to visit our project, and we are happy to help you with travel details and escort you either in the spring or fall - when our directors visit. A typical trip takes about 10 days - we recommend a least one month preparation time (vaccinations, visas, etc.)
