To pay the school fees for a poor child...

snacktime for boys
You can invest in an Ethiopian child's education and help a poor rural family by paying the school fees to enable their son or daughter to attend Empress Mentewab School.

Annual school fees are 6,000 birr per child (£200, 220 euros, US$260).

There are three ways to pay school fees:

(1) Transfer to Bank Account - UK
(2) Transfer to Bank Account - Ethiopia
(3) Paypal

Please do not send a cheque to Ethiopia as it is unlikely that the Commercial Bank of Ethiopia would accept it.

Note that there is no tax-efficient way to pay school fees. Gift Aid does not apply because Empress Mentewab School is not a registered charity in the UK.

Please use the CONTACT KATE section to let Kate know that you are sending the school fees, and whether you prefer to help a boy or a girl.

Kate will tell you the name of the child whose school fees you have paid and send you his or her photograph and background information.

In July you will receive a copy of the pupil's school report and a photograph of the assisted child.
