Help us to Build a Resourceful School in Awassa, Ethiopia

Our goal is to build and operate a K-12 school - the Panafric International Academy. It will be a school for children of all ethnic, religious and economic backgrounds. By providing a dynamic and supportive classroom environment based on an enhanced international standard of education, we will make a difference in the lives of the next African generation.


2016-teethA new year may not be magical in itself to transform anything. However, New Year's resolution has become almost a cultural tradition in the West. It is a time that many reflect on the past year, rethink and reorganize for the coming year. Moreover, it gives one the opportunity to forgive oneself for broken promises, to right wrongs, to reaffirm relational commitments, look forward to new promises, hopes, plans, and energize oneself to become a better person

So, I would like to wish everyone a happy New Year and success in your 2017 New Year resolutions!


The Brain-Drain Dilemma

For the past thirty-five years Ethiopia suffered an immeasurable level of brain-drain. From the time of the communist military junta (1974-1991) to the present (1991-2011), it has become the norm for thousands of Ethiopian brightest-and-best to leave their country that needs them most and migrate towards the West for a better life and political freedom.


On the Brink of an Education Crisis


In 2010, the Global Campaign for Education (comprising Education International, Plan International, Oxfam, Save the Children and VSO) produced a report entitled "Back to School?" According to that report, Ethiopia is one of the 5 worst countries in the world to be a school child, and is "teetering on the brink of an education crisis."



The Uncertain Future

As I write this entry, and a U.N agency (FAO) reported a severe drought in progress in East Africa. According to the report, “In Ethiopia, millions more require emergency food assistance.  What’s more, the lack of rain is blamed for the deaths of 220,000 cattle in the Borena Zone along the southern border with Kenya.”
