The Kindu Trust places a high value on the education of its beneficiaries, as a result the charity offers supplementary education to the children at the Kindu Klub. Here the children can attend extra classes in English, Maths and Science. This can help a child get a head start that may not have been possible in their circumstances, furthermore this tutoring helps build a better future for the children and their communities.
One of the main challenges in providing this service however is the shortage of books available to educational centres such as the Kindu Klub. Good quality text books, Ethiopian and English dictionaries, informative texts, advisory material and novels are always being sought after by The Kindu Trust. With these materials The Kindu Klub can continue to help those most in need within the education system.
Just think, those books sat around the house that have been read once and will never be read again or those old text books collecting dust on the book shelf can be sent to a community in Ethiopia where they can used many times over.
We are pleased then by the arrival of a shipment of books donated to The Kindu Trust by ‘Books abroad’! There was an impressive array of material from chemistry text books through to past editions of the National Geographic.
Here is some feedback from Kassahun Demisse our general manager in Gondar!
It’s my pleasure to confirm the receipt of three parcels of different kinds of books. Thank you so much for sending those books to our organization, The Kindu Trust-Ethiopia. As our project is a Sponsorship in the Community Project, we are running different projects which can help and support our beneficiaries and their families in a number of ways. Among these small projects, the Kindu Club is one of them.
The Kindu Club is established to help our children to have access for supplementary education and to create a proper place where they can study their lessons, do their home works, read fictions and develop their reading skills, get reference books and sometimes practice physical exercises as they lack these facilities at home. Therefore, the books which we already received from you and perhaps the others which will follow next are and will be very helpful for running our Kindu Club programme as we expect it to be.
I, on behalf of The Kindu Trust-Ethiopia team, am very grateful for your donation
