Tesfa Foundation UK

The Tesfa Foundation-UK is an independent charity that raises funds to provide early childhood education to the poorest children in Ethiopia. There is no public pre-school provision in Ethiopia. Without our help, these children would not be receiving an education. With our help, they learn basic Maths, English and Science and grow in confidence and ability. If you would like more information about the child you are sponsoring through a monthly donation, don't forget to tick the box asking you if you want your details sent to the Tesfa Foundation UK.

Charity Registration No. 1120021

Story

This year, we are encouraging children at St Barnabas school or runners in Run Jericho to fundraise again in support of a library in Bekoji, Ethiopia which we helped to establish last year.  Bekoji now has a library, but there are annual running costs for an assistant librarian and internet connection, which we are hoping to support.

Bekoji is small town in the Ethopian highlands with an unusually active local running community and an exceptional number of elite runners originating from the town, as featured in the film "Town of Runners" (If you haven't seen the film, you can watch it here: http://vimeo.com/ondemand/townofrunners ).

So please help to support Bejoki library and donate now.
