Making a Difference
Instead of begging, or hiding, our kids are safe in school
Our Family is Growing
Education is free in Ethiopia, so why this school? If children are so poor that they have to beg on the streets, then they do not have time for school. Fresh & Green Academy is there to take these kids in.
We are the volunteers who keep 275 children in school, fed and cared for in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Canadian Friends of Fresh and Green Academy is a registered Canadian charity whose primary job is to fundraise since our school receives no government funding. In 2019, we joined the American non-profit that has been running since 2008 to spread the word about this unique school and its founder, Muday Mitiku.
Making a Donation
After you have checked out this website, we ask you to consider making a monthly donation to contribute to the Fresh & Green community. We visit the school several times a year to make sure that donations are used for food, rent, teachers’ salaries, and supplies for the students.
Monthly donations give us a sound financial footing on which to support this endeavour, but one-time donations are welcome as they have helped us overcome many a crisis.

If this is the kind of job opportunity you are looking for, we can promise that you, yes You, will be your own reward for the good you have done.
What Drives Us
Our mission is to support Fresh & Green Academy through fundraising and promotion of the endeavours of the Mothers Cooperative. We aim to deliver our services to the school in person when we can, in order to assist its growth and maintenance. We hope to involve many volunteers in our events and trips so that they can share in the success and vision of school founder and director Muday Mitiku
