This week saw a visit from Laurens from the Dutch organization “Voluntary Worldwide.“ We have been in communication with this organization for a while, with the idea being to work with them in receiving volunteers.  In this way, we would hopefully have a steady stream of volunteers thereby enabling the children and teachers to have even more exposure to different techniques and English speakers.
All has gone very well – so we are hoping to formalize it all in the very near future and start receiving volunteers mid March.
In addition, this week saw the proper start of the nursery Oormifa class – previously, due to a lack of a separate teacher, the Amharic and Oromifa class have simply learnt in the same classroom , with those who want to learn in Ooromifa being taught in that language. 

However, it has appeared that this is unsatisfactory for the regulations and as a result, we have been forced to separate the classes, with the assistant teacher going across to teach Ooromifa leaving the teacher alone in the class of 25 which is a little too much for one as the pupils are only young.
We are on the lookout for a new assistant teacher, but it is difficult at this time of year to find someone – so fingers crossed!

On December 4th – 6th, we are trying to raise donations for our planned school building. We are lucky enough to have been chosen for one of the projects for the Big Give Christmas Challenge where there will be matched funding- effectively doubling donations!
Every little bit helps – lots of £ 2 or £ 5 can really make a difference!  - so please try to make your donations at:
