Education Sponsorship

After kindergarten graduation, the entire family graduates from Adera’s sponsorship program. While support is still available, the goal is to build towards independence. But the need for a quality education means that we still offer educational sponsorships for our children as they graduate from kindergarten and enter grades 1-8.

Grades 1-8

A quality education is vital in order for students to remain in a competitive school environment.
  • Ratio of teacher to students must be minimize for their future success. 
  • English skills must be developed and maximized for the students’ achievement in the national exams.
  • Teachers need to have ongoing training and support to be empowered for their personal development and the equipping of the next generation in Ethiopia.
Upon graduation from kindergarten, Adera partners with parents and sponsors to provide life-changing educational opportunities.
  • Adera covers the cost of private education through $25/month tuition support
  • Private school provides lower student-teacher ratios and a rigorous and robust curriculum as well as extracurricular activities
  • Parents demonstrate a shared commitment by partnering with Adera and attending monthly meetings and ongoing communication for their child’s success.  
  • Sponsored children are invited to attend “Sabbath School” every week, a program that teaches the Word of God through the service of generous volunteers.

“But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ…” 

2 Peter 3:18

Hiber Primary School Partnership

(also known as the Adera Feeding Program)

Adera is committed to helping the Korah community provide support and excellent education opportunities for as many children as possible.

By providing support and programming to Hiber Primary School, Adera is able to reach hundreds of students in the Korah area

The feeding program meets a practical and essential need. Adera firmly believes that a student cannot learn on an empty stomach.
  • Every day Adera provides hot, nutritious lunches to 300 students based on need.
  • Because many of these students have little or nothing to eat at home, this meal may be the only one they have that day.
  • Through relationships established by the feeding program, Adera staff are able to nurture the students’ minds as well by encouraging them in their studies.
  • Providing nourishment for the students’ bodies and minds demonstrates to them the love of Jesus.
  • After school programs include: Guitar Lessons, Soccer Club, educational support, computer labs, and ongoing meaningful relationships for students.
Many students find themselves on the streets or home alone during the after-school hours. Adera’s programs offer safety and helpful training for the students.
