Project Support

Each school has their own unique issues, but at the heart of each problem is the lack of supplies for teachers and students, as well as the books themselves. We are currently working in the Wordia Region around Gonder, Ethiopia. Currently we are working with the regional coordinator for education from the Ethiopian government. There are 8 schools in this area, and each have their own needs. We hope to secure the necessary school books for each grade level in each school. We also hope to promote college education for our high school students. Our hope is to see at least 50% of these students attend college (that is higher than the country's average). We are hoping to provide scholarships for the top students, to educate parents on the importance of post high school education, and to begin a leadership academy teaching the students how to be leaders in their community and in their school. We are passionate to create better leaders in our youth that we work with. With transparency at the center of what Acts of Wisdom is about, we seek to be an organization that serves the poor in developing countries and to also serve our donors who wish to help them. Our model is this: to help better the education of students in rural Africa, and in the process, connect the donors to the communities that they are helping.  Below are the village school projects and the needs for each. We hope to have the best schools in Ethiopia with the Wordia Schools at the top of the list Here's how you can help-

That is a lot of students missing out on education.
