Current Needs and Objectives
Although the long term goal of the Shashamane Educational Project is to achieve sustainability by the year 2020, we are currently seeking partnership and funding to underwrite the schools budget for 2018-2019 in the amount of $50,000. This educational project must be in compliance with the Ethiopian Education Bureau requirements and safety standards. The school has managed to be in compliance with all of these requirements and standards except two task: (1)Remove and replace the old KG building to specific proximity from the Elementary School building. This new concrete 3 classroom structure is estimated to cost $15,000, and (2)Build a separate Sanitary Facility for the KG at an estimated cost of $2,170. Fulfilling these two immediate needs will allow for the Shashamane Educational Project to continue to be a safe space for our students and fulfill the requirements and standards set by The Ethiopian Education Bureau standards.
We have well-considered ideas about how to achieve our sustainability. Notably the acquisition of a tour passenger bus to be used to generate income in Ethiopia and we are prepared to expound on this with potential funders, if and when the opportunity lends itself.
