On 16 September, the school for the blind in Debre Zeit has started again. After a holiday of more than two months, 11 children started in the second year and 9 children started in the first year.
In the past period the teachers have followed (in-depth) training, aimed at dealing with blind children. This training was sponsored by the Czech Embassy in Addis Ababa.
An extra teacher has also been appointed, which increases the continuity and quality of the curriculum.
The TTAF Foundation will also financially support the school this school year. In addition, the TTAF Foundation monitors the activities of the school through periodic (sometimes unannounced) visits by Zenebe Ayele and Albert Fieret.
The pictures give an impression of the first steps of the new students in their new environment.
