This is a nation where the literacy rate among men is 60% and among women, nearly 45%. For every 10 boys, 7 girls attend high school, where schooling is free though the 10th grade. One in four university students are girls, but a quarter of them will drop out before they graduate. 78% of Ethiopians live in poverty.
Ethiopia is the first country in which AMBW began its work. We have supported several students through university and have watched them graduate, have removed a child labor from the streets and sent to school instead. One student obtained his bachelor and master degrees, and now works with AMBW.
Our Representative in Ethiopia
The very first representative of ‘A More Balanced World’ outside the United States, Andu was born and raised in Jimma, Ethiopia, where the organization began support of its first beneficiary in the Fall of 2020. He is a graduate of Jimma University School of Law, with both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Business Law.
In 2015, Andu moved to the United States and currently resides in Southern California. He continues to be the liaison between the organization and our local representative in Ethiopia.
