During July a new sandpit was built for the school. It is possible that this is the first children's sandpit to be built in Ethiopia. The sandpit was funded by Empress Mentewab School's link school, Ffairfach School in Wales.
The sandpit is not quite finished: it needs a thatched roof to provide shade. Also, there is a shortage of sand play equipment for the children.
For more information about and images of the sandpit at Empress Mentewab School, see Sand Play
