EE board members Lesley Stephenson and André Cardinaux will fly to Ethiopia tomorrow to help organise the opening of the first new school buildings at Lemlem School in Mohoni next Tuesday, October 5th. The school community is very excited and all sorts of activities are planned. Transferring 800 of the school’s 1400 students into clean new rooms in which they will have a floor under their feet for the first time ever will be an organisational challenge, but with the excellent teaching team working with our members and their two guests, we’re sure it will go smoothly. We’ll be posting the photos when the group returns.
How can you help the school? Well, there are many ways. What about organising your own small fundraising event, like a dinner party at which your guests make a donation in lieu of flowers or chocolates for the host? And don’t forget our lovely EE Xmas cards. Available with Season’s Greetings or German equivalent, these elegant cards have a picture from our Hagereselam project on the front, and tell the story of the picture on the back. There is also a blank version available for use throughout the year.
Our special Earlybird offer is just CHF 4 for single cards, and a pack of all five subjects for just CHF 15, a 30% saving on the regular price. Cards are packed with envelopes and sent by post with a payment slip. Order now from: firstname.lastname@example.org, giving us your name and address, card types (German/English Christmas message and story) or without Christmas message. Your payment will go fully to our projects.
