    We had a very successful trip to Ethiopia. It has been one of the greatest achievements of our project in West-Wollega, Oromia. With an estimated cost of 3.5 mill ETB, Aga-Foundation in collaboration with FAIR Norway managed to ship 433 computers, 6 video projectors and 8 network switches. School computer labs and community infotech centers were established. E-books, video lectures, and software packages were also taken together with the computers. More detail about the project will follow soon. I would like to thank Ghimbi and Dongoro town communities for the warm receptions.

Without access to clean, safe, renewable sources of light, children cannot study in the evenings, women give birth in the dark, and people spend up to 40% of their incomes on energy needs. Aga Foundation launched a new project called Let There be Light : to supports sustainable and attainable development through the distribution of low-cost/high-impact Solar Lights in rural Ethiopia.

Help us to bridge the digital divide!

Access to information technology (IT) should no longer be a luxury in the developing world, as it is vital for improving people’s educational and economic prospects. However, in Ethiopia,  high cost of new equipment, limited infrastructure and the lack of IT knowledge and skills, prevented many people to have access to IT.  Aga Foundation aims to tackle this digital divide, with particular emphasis on schools and communities in west Wollega zone of Ethiopia.
