Friends of Fresh and Green, Inc. is a non-profit organization that supports a school for impoverished children in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
Our students live in conditions that are unimaginable to most Westerners. No electricity or plumbing, no state aid, and no means to obtain food except by begging.
Local teacher Muday Mitiku founded Fresh and Green Academy to provide an education and nourishing food to the children in the Yeka Kiteme neighborhood of Addis Ababa.
The school is funded entirely by donations. With your help, the children receive three meals a day and the educational tools they need to move themselves out of the poverty into which they were born. Their mothers receive classes on nutrition and hygiene, and make jewelry and other crafts that Friends of Fresh and Green sell in the United States. By empowering them to support themselves and their other children, Fresh and Green Academy is an oasis of learning and nourishment for the whole community.
