How education has improved young lives in Ethiopia

CCFC celebrates the successful conclusion of a five-year education project

Nelson Mandela once said, “Education is the most powerful weapon, which you can use to change the world.” That’s something our international team can attest to every day; it’s why we place such an emphasis on education at Christian Children’s Fund of Canada.

In fact, it’s so much a part of what we do that we launched the Lead for Education Achievement and Progress (LEAP) project in Ethiopia five years ago with the help of local partners.

Today we are celebrating the successful completion of LEAP, made possible by funding through the Government of Canada. It engaged minds, communicating the importance of education in three districts where there were shortages of classrooms, libraries, books, teaching materials and more.

I am incredibly proud of what was achieved. Here’s just a sampling of what the team did:

  • trained 53 early-childhood education facilitators
  • engaged 34,868 parents, leaders and teachers in conversations promoting education
  • improved education provided in 50 primary schools
  • increased enrolment of children in early-childhood programs, from eight percent to 56 percent
  • improved student performance in subjects such as math, English and science

As the project wrapped up, our Ethiopian team gathered with representatives from local governments, non-governmental agencies and others to share our learnings and best practices. Working together to improve education will mean a brighter future for so many — multiplying our individual efforts.

Indeed, education is the most powerful weapon.
