BOR-B Bonga Boarding Houses

The Bonga Boarding Houses - Project Officer Emma Lewis

These houses help to support students from rural areas by providing them with accommodation, so they can live in Bonga, Ethiopia to attend high school or further education.

Your sponsorship will help to feed, clothe, educate, provide school books and medical costs to vulnerable children who would not have the opportunity of an education had they remained in their villages, as their families are very poor and schooling finishes at grade 6, therefore they cannot afford to send them to school in Bonga.                                                                                    

Girls and Boys Boarding Houses

Father Alemayehu Haile, who facilitates the Ethiopian side of the Bonga Rural Sponsorship Program and the Bonga Emergency Flood Relief, has provided two boarding houses, one for the girls and one for the boys. He provides them with free accommodation, including water and electricity, so these students will have an opportunity of an education.

This is a batch sponsorship, so the money is pooled between the students, which will ensure all of them will benefit. Also if a student drops out of school or completes their education, they will not receive the support, but any new student joining the group will automatically receive the support in food and other essentials.
Your support will go toward these children eating regular meals, blankets, clothing and other necessities, and provide for their educational needs.  As the project grows and we receive more sponsors, more children will be provided for.
These students are involved in learning to grow their own vegetables, which will help them become more self-sufficient.
