Dear friends and supporters:
The Fregenet Foundation is pleased to report that we have received a $6,000 grant from the Three Graces Foundation, a philanthropic organization that evaluates and provides funding for worthy nonprofits.
This grant is yet another testimonial to our ongoing success in establishing and operating a school in Addis Ababa, which provides a free education, a feeding program, and basic health services to students in need. The Three Graces Foundation has added its voice to those of other charitable organizations (e.g., Global Fund for Children, USA for Africa and others) who have recognized our ongoing achievements.
The $6,000 we have received from the Three Graces Foundation will go toward building a permanent school once we have acquired the land on which to break ground. Our President has been in Ethiopia since May working with local staff and board members on securing land for the new school, so please stay tuned for more good news to come!
The grants we receive, and our continued successes in raising funds for our programs, reflect the hard work of our board members, staffs and advisors, here in the US and in Ethiopia, the commitment of our supporters, and the importance of our mission of ensuring that children across the globe have access to high quality education.
Thank you all for your continued support.
The Fregenet Foundation
