Year of The Girl Fundraising week

We are focusing on fundraising for The Year of The Girl during the week beginning 4th July 2022. If you are interested in organising a small fundraiser there are lots of ideas on our website (click on the button below).

We've already made a start!
Girls' literacy has suffered during Covid and it is well below that of boys. We are funding teachers to deliver reading tutorials to develop girls' literacy. The results look very exciting!
The cost of running this tutorial is less than £1 per girl per month. 

You can donate to The Year of The Girl by clicking the button below.

Help Us to Maintain and Develop Our Projects in Ethiopia

Over the past year, EEL and its members have made a real impact despite incredibly challenging conditions in Western Ethiopia. To maintain our projects we need your support.

Support for Deaf Students

Our supported deaf students have to live in rented accommodation in order to attend Secondary School. The donations we receive enable us to supply these students with everyday necessities such as oil and soap. The photos below were taken at a recent distribution.

AGM 2021

Our AGM was held on Zoom on Thursday 10 June.

This was another successful AGM in the virtual world. THANK YOU to everyone who ZOOMED in and made the event such a success! Members celebrated our achievements over a very difficult last year. Members also watched videos from our representatives in Ethiopia outlining the great work being undertaken and the success of the schemes and the difference they are making to peoples' lives. We look towards a stronger future by appointing two new Trustees and electing a secretary to our Charity as we go from strength to strength. Thank you again for all your interest and support.

You can watch the videos shown at the AGM on our new YouTube channel:
