We intend to expand the meal program and create the infrastructure to rebuild and nurture a community garden through an eco-preneurship project- with YOUR help.
To ensure ongoing support and sustainability, we have called upon the help of family, friends and alumni to provide scholarships; to repair, green and beautify the school to positively impact the surrounding Shashemene community. In addition, we would like to explore: a farm to table organic garden project that creates healthy meals for the students; the development of a multimedia and music center in the future where we can wisely use technology and music to help heal and bridge the gap between cultures at home. This hub would be a safe place where our eco-preneurship can meet, be mentored and work on Digital Projects together. We are prepared to organize and implement these items with your permissions at no costs to the school, students and community.
We look forward to a successful mission and welcome any questions you may have.
