(We appologize, that the pictures can currently not be seen on smartphones and tablets) The school: The school’s terrain, you can see it in the promotion video, is an property surrounded by walls with three classrooms, and art- and storage room, a kitchen, sanitary facilities, an office, a living- and play room and a grass meadow. All these things were consciously planned by ENPA, because they provide the children in every thinkable way they need for a physically and psychologically healthy development. Mothers training It is in our interest, that the families of the supervised children are getting included in the process of the project. This happens regularly in parents evenings and especially in common projects to help the families help themselves in the future. To make them independent and help them to break out of the vicious circle of poverty. The “mothers training”, for example offered the mothers of the pupils sewing courses and with small financial credits (microcredits) ENPA were able to support the income of some families at long-term. School outing, summer 2015 In august 2015 the children and their teachers went to a hill near the school. Despite the typical strong rain for this season the children had a lot of opportunities to romp, explore the nature and visit historical buildings like a very old church that has been almost completely destroyed by the fascist Italy during the Second World War. Individual cases/examples In these pictorial cutouts you may see how an analysis of new potential students looks like. Usually the project manager receives informations from the community regularly and sometimes from the authorities that another family exist in the area with a four/five years old child. After that Kaleb (the project manager) will meet the family soon and will check their constitution and living conditions. Most of the families are desperately poor and a lot of them could never afford to send their children to one of the public schools. Kaleb’s difficult task is to decide which of the candidates will have the chance to become a new student of ENPA. The list of applying candidates expands constantly because of the growing reputation of ENPA in the area of Kotebe. Out of respect of the people and families we will censor their names and eyes. Thank you for understanding! Living conditions: Ethiopia is not a rich country (financially). The average salary of an Ethiopian is 1,30€ per day! The infrastructure as well is, compared to other countries, inadequate. Even if you are able to notice the resistant and high growth of the economy in recent years, especially in Addis Ababa, you can only hope that this progress will also benefit the poor of this country. Here you can see and example of the living conditions of the families of the pupils who get supervised by ENPA. Ethiopian landscape: Ethiopa is a stunning country. Large and unbelievable beautiful. The biggest within-state of the world compared to the population. You will barely find another country so old and with such a unique history and culture. The cradle of humanity, the only African country which has never been colonized (despite the short occupation of Italy during the Second World War), the only African country with an own alphabet; A country that is famous for their history of religions (Ethiopia was the second country which has accepted the Christian religion as their state religion. Even before the Roman Empire did) and their peaceful coexistence. A green country. A country which appears in so much songs of the Rastafari community as their original home country. Ethiopia got a lot of potential. Economically the country is developing fast. We’ll have to see if this is enough to fix all the problems of this oldest state in existing. Like one of my dear friend who lives in Addis wrote: “People ask: Aren't you from Ethiopia that poor country? I answer them: um Not poor but : - The only African nation never colonized.. - First Africans to win gold in the Olympics - The only African nation with its own Alphabet - The country that practiced Christianity before Europeans &accepted Islam before the Middle East! - The first country that started with the flag colors that everyone rocks without even knowing what it means ( Green, Yellow, Red) & the origin of Rastafarianism - One of the few countries in the world that's mentioned both in the Bible & Quran.. over 50 times! - The country that is the origin of the coffee you drink - The country with so much culture& spirituality that you can't even comprehend! - Home to the earliest human sightings & human fossils on earth that date over 3.2 millions of years old ( Lucy, Ardi etc) Yes! I am from that beautiful country & Proud of it !! I am truly and absolutely happy to be Ethiopian and I am proud of it!” „Fun!“ Here you may see the children in a condition every child should be: Happy!
