Dil-Ayen campus opening September, 2023!

Thanks to members of the Manale Foundation community and their gifts, the construction of Dil Ayen Elementary School in Belassa Ethiopia is completed on time. We now have a pressing need for 200 school desks and chairs, to provide the students with a comfortable and conducive environment for their education.


Many children in Ethiopia lack access to proper seating arrangements, hindering their ability to focus and learn effectively. By providing school desks and chairs, we can create a positive impact on their educational journey.

With your generous gift, we can make a significant difference in the lives of these children.


Each classroom requires the following:

25 Student desks & chairs (7,600 Birr x 25) =190,000 Birr / $3,519 USD

Furnishing 8 classrooms = 1,520,000 Birr / $28,148 USD

1 blackboard per classroom (5000 Birr x 8) = 40,000 Birr / $741 USD

8 Teacher's desks & chairs (6000 Birr x 8) = 48,000 Birr / $889 USD


Furniture cost (1,520,000 + 40,000 + 48,000 Birr) = 1,608,000 Birr / $29,778 USD

Total cost Inclusive of Transportation = 1,800,000 Birr / $33,333 USD

54 Birr = $1 USD

Your gift will be put to work immediately and impact the education and well-being of these students, enabling them to thrive academically. Education is the foundation for a brighter future, and by investing in these school essentials, we can empower these young minds to reach their full potential.

Together, let's make a lasting impact on the lives of these children. Your contribution, no matter the amount, will bring us closer to our goal.
