Celebration at Fitawrari Public School
The celebration was attended by the leaders of many of Akaki Kaliti's most important organisations: the Kebeles, the city council and the heads of all the primary schools. They came to see and better understand the schools project for feeding the children. This is the primary school where Mediterranea constructed a dining room and kitchen and serves breakfast to all the 160 pre-school children and breakfast, lunch and tea to the 103 orphans who attend the school.
The dignitaries also inaugurated the Information Technology Centre which was equipped with computers donated and purchased by Mediterranea.
They then proceeded to deliver uniforms bought with money provided by Mediterranea. The donation of 24000 birrs (1092 Euros) served to purchase the uniforms and also the school material for the current year.
The authorities and school directors, in addition to visiting the dining room and kitchen, also had the chance to see the entrance road, new toilets and playground, all of which were paid for and constructed by Mediterranea.
The saddest part of this happy day was saying goodbye to the two assistant directors of the school. One of who was taking up the position as director of another school and the other as supervisor for all of the primary schools in Akaki.
