Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I am hoping to raise as much money as possible for Link which supports education in . Last year I spent 3 ½ months living and working in Gondar in the north-west of the country and have seen first hand the fantastic work this charity does in providing clean water, classrooms, books and other resources and materials for a large number of schools. As well as all this Link Ethiopia runs a child sponsorship programme which provides uniforms, books and writing materials for children whose parents would not otherwise be able to afford to send them to school. The charity also sends a number of volunteer teachers out to each year, which is how I got to experience this remarkable country for myself.

Development is still an uphill struggle for a country like but focusing on educating the younger generation is key to its future.

The exchange rate is currently £1 = 25 Ethiopian Birr and with pens and books costing just a couple of birr, a donation of just £5 can contribute so much

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

Thank you very much for your support.
