School equipment needed
Old mobile phones always needed, as long as the battery still works! Please let us know if you can let us have any out of date phones. The best ones are the simple robust old-fashioned ones!
Different size balls, also with different textures.
Colour felt pens and marker pens.
Children’s scissors (rounded tips).
Memory games (pairing cards).
Playdough, plasticine and similar.
Children’s songs on CD in English. Also DVD with action songs.
Stickers (for rewards).
Simple musical instruments such as drum, triangle, xylophone etc.
English audio books.
For staff and science departments:
Android tablets - if you have an android tablet (with charger) that you no longer need, we would appreciate it for the staff and management at the school. We use them to show videos of science experiments to help the teachers learn how to set them up.
Digital cameras and video cameras - we need digital cameras with working batteries or replaceable ones and digital video cameras with hard disks or chips. We are teaching the children visual arts as part of their art course. Please contact us at and we can arrange a collection. Thank you very much.
Our music room (see video link) is now open and running well. Our music would improve if we had more musical instruments. If you are able to donate portable instruments, especially, flute, clarinet, violin, percussion please let us know. (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we can arrange collection.
Many thanks for your help.
We are now equipping our labs. Many materials are not available in Ethiopia, so we need your help. Do you know of schools or laboratories that might have old equipment that the school may be able to use, but is not needed in its current home? Please contact us at and we can arrange a collection. Thank you very much.
