Home > From The President > Season’s Greetings from the Fregenet Foundation

Dear friends and supporters,

As President of the Fregenet Foundation, I would like to send you my wishes for a joyous holiday season! It is a wonderful time of year, as it allows us an opportunity to spend time with our families and to reflect on helping those who are less fortunate than ourselves.

In this season of giving, I hope you will consider a donation to help some of the neediest children in Ethiopia. The Fregenet Foundation continues to make great strides our school in Addis Ababa now educates, feeds, clothes, and provides basic medical care to more than 270 children between the ages of four and ten. The Foundation employs 19 teachers and other staff members to meet the students’ needs and pays all costs of their education, including textbooks, uniforms, hot lunches, and pay for prescription drugs when they get sick.

Our great success to present has depended in large measure on the generosity of donors like you, and we need your renewed support to continue our mission of bringing basic education to ever greater numbers of children in Ethiopia. In this season, some of you always remember our children and shower us with big financial support on annual basis. You know who you are and we are always grateful to your kind hearts.

This time again, I would like to humbly ask all of our supporters to reach out and to consider forgoing one of the gifts slated for a friend or family member, and instead donate the equivalent amount to the Fregenet Foundation. No Amount is considered too small.

Please write your checks payable to The Fregenet Foundation and mail it to
