The Corona virus is everywhere. It is a pandemic. We are for understandable reasons focused on our own everyday life. But, also in Ethiopia the everyday life is highly affected. More than you might imagine.

MJ MarCable Consulting AB sponsors "Barnfonden", a member of ChildFund.
Shubi Gemo primary school in district Dugda is about 3 hours driving from the capital Addis Abeba, Ethiopia. 753 children go to the school in, today, overcrowded classrooms. Few and old school books are the only material available. The hygienic conditions can be improved. The local project, financed by Barnfonden and sponsored by MarCable Consulting targets increasing the number of classrooms, building toilets, powering the building with solar cells, utilizing clean rainwater and empower the local people.

After a long journey the school buildings are ready. The inauguration has taken place. Children and parents were happy and proud! Dance, songs and a tour through the buildings were part of the program. The project delivered 3 school buildings with 4 class rooms each.
Quite some work has been done the last months. Even though floodings have made the work difficult. The result looks very good!
The walls of four classrooms in Barnfondens school are now in place! Also the construction details necessary for the roof have been built.
I have been quiet about this Barnfonden project for some time. But that does not mean nothing has happened!
The future is for the younger generation. And that future begins with a safe place to live, food, health, care and education.
