Yetesfa Mesk International Academy

One of the many challenges that face single mothers in Addis Ababa is the fact that they often have nobody to watch their children and therefore it is extremely difficult for them to get a normal job that would require them to be away from home eight hours or more at a time. Because of this, many women end up begging on the streets or selling their bodies to put food on the table.

This is why Fields of Hope’s first project in Ethiopia is to open a tuition free school that provides high quality education and a safe environment for the children, allowing their Moms to go out and get a job.

Children are the future

We believe that all children deserve opportunity, no matter the depth of poverty they come from. It is this belief that drives us to treat our students as if they were children of ambassadors. We envision all of our students as the leaders of tomorrow!
