Since 2009 Project Pencil Case (PPC) has been supporting students in need; working with our Ethiopian Social Enterprise partner Arakele (training women from marginalised backgrounds to sew/design and be employed within the textile sector), PPC has been helping Ethiopian students providing them primarily with pencil cases, uniforms and scholarships.
We work with local Woredas (Councils) to assist specific students in the communities that need the most support.
In 2021 we specifically fundraised for feeding programs and the desperate humanitarian needs of children and young people as conflict broke out in the north of Ethiopia in November 2021….
Donations and Funds raised support the material needs of underprivileged students throughout the school year – whatever those needs might be.
PPC operates without a dedicated office and the work of fundraising and administering funds is conducted by Arabella Stewart in the UK and both Arabella Stewart and Mikele Goitom in Ethiopia – visiting and sourcing projects to fund, establishing relationships with trusted local partners as well as implementing funds and monitoring and evaluation.
Donations are received through Paypal (secure donation button below):
