We have opened eight schools in the Amhara region since the inception of FGCF, and are planning to complete construction of five more in 2019 (one being completion of a 2018 project).

The teacher training program has begun in all eight schools; the greening and gardening program is well under way in our first five schools, and we look forward to it beginning in the other schools in 2019. Water tanks have been installed in four of the schools and access to water from nearby sources has been completed in three of those.

Our sanitation & hygiene workshops have been held in three schools so far and will be provided to all of the others in the near future.

The first reading and math assessments were taken in three schools in the fall of 2017 and a second round was conducted in June 2018. Results provided an invaluable tool to teachers, principals, and our FGCF Education experts alike, to assess areas where our program has been successful, and areas where there improvement may be warranted.
