Sunday March 10, 2002   at 3:00pm
Ethiopian Community Center 595 Notre Dame Ave.


Our next little project, as mentioned before, is sending books (used, and new) to students back in Ethiopia. We can say that we are almost done with the preperations for the project, but we would greatly appreciate any input from other members of the community. If anyone has any books, text books or novels, we will greatly appreciate it if you can donate them to us. University level books and high school books are most welcomed. The more books we send to them, the more of a difference we can make.
I would also like to urge any high school students to please ask their schools for a donation. If that is not at all possible, if they could direct you to someone who will be willing to help it would lend a hand.
The public school system in Ethiopian is not up to standard, but we have an obligation to our younger brothers and sisters to do something to relieve the situation. We would greatly appreciate any help. You can e-mail us and we will get back to you as soon as we can. We will keep you posted on the progress we are making.
