“The soul is healed by being around children”
This quote tells a greater story of how Fregenet Foundation was created. The sudden loss of a daughter: a father’s commitment to carry out his only child’s dream of supporting the development of children in her native Ethiopia.
What started out with a handful of students in a makeshift classroom, has flourished into an established school serving children from underserved communities in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. What makes this foundation unique and unparalleled is, its efficacy in not only meeting student’s social needs but ensuring the education provided prepares them for middle, high school and higher education.
The transparency exercised by the board continues to make it a standout non-profit organization. Whether updating the public on incremental success stories, a narration of student’s journey or providing their annual reports for all to view, is truly a testament of how with little we can all impact our world one child at a time.
This summer, we are starting a tradition we hope will grow into a phenomenon. We are hosting a Family Fun Day, filled with activities for children, art auction, food, games, fit a thon, entertainment and much more. We look forward to your participation, contribution, and support towards the great work Fregenet Foundation continues to do. Simply because the future depends on what we do with children today!
