Some Student Stories

MERON TAKELE PIC

“My name is Meron Takele. I am 10 years old and I am in grade 4. I have 2 older sisters. One of my sister went to school until grade 4 and then she went to Beirut, my other sister also went to school until grade 7 and when she was about to start grade 8 her visa came and went to Beirut. I don’t want to go to elsewhere like my sisters I would rather learn and achieve my dream [of] becoming an accountant. In general I like all the subjects but my most favorite subject is Math. I only saw a computer once our teacher took us to show us the parts of a leaf. I never saw it again but I would like to touch it and learn more on it as it looks so fancy.”

KIRUBEL MESFIN PIC 2

“My name is Kirubel Mesfin. I am 8 years old and 3rd grade student. I have two sisters and three brothers. I am the youngest child in my family. Only I and my elder sister go to school because my family are unable to afford for all of us. My older brother went to school until he drops out at 10th grade.  Now he doesn’t go to school anymore because he needs to support the family. I love to learn and I have scored good grades and always ranking number 1. The first time I saw a computer was at our school. The school had 2 PCs and they showed us how to write our names and showed us some picture of Animals. I was so amazed and asking my teacher so many questions; how does it work? who is behind the computer? Since then I am more eager to know more about it and I want to learn more. I don’t want to quit my education like my brother I want to learn more and know more about computer and join university’s to become a civil engineer.”

“It’s not easy teaching the children without proper facilities. Most of them start school at the age of 7-12 and they are very shy to communicate with people. What we do is we print out each student’s name and picture and label it on their desk and we would teach them their name and how to say their name in sign language.”  School Deputy Principal Mr Aynalem Asefa.

Some Student Stories

TIGIST KEBEDE

“My name is Tigist Kebede I am 17 and I just got in grade 10. I am very excited that I have joined grade 10. I joined in the Yekatit School last year and they gave us a computer theory class then but I didn’t get the chance to touch the computers as there is a shortage. I want to learn more and know about computer as I aspire to become a Doctor. I know I have to read a lot and search more books I usually use the library but that’s not enough as they have a few books and most of them are being used by students it would help me more if was able to use the computer to do more searches on books.

AMANUEL ARAGAW

“My Name is Amanuel Aragaw I was born and raised here in Hosaena. I am 19 and in grad 12. I am the first child for my family and I have younger siblings. Previously I have taken theory class on computers so I usually go to the government schools to read more on a computer as I was unable to get books. Here we have a few computers but compared to the student’s number it’s impossible to learn on a computer. Next year, God’s will I will join the university and I want to study software engineering. I know it’s not going to be easy as I have limited knowledge on computer but I am hopeful that I will somehow manage it and come back to this school to teach other students I hope then we will have enough computers for the next generation.”

Some Student Stories

PICTURE OF RAHEL

“My Name is Rahel. I am 11 years old and I am in grade 3. For the first time that I saw a computer was on text book and I asked my sister what it was. She told me the name and I told that I will learn more about it when I grow up. From time to time I see it on TV, and it looks fun when people use it. I still don’t know what it does but am sure it is very entertaining.”

PICTURE OF ESHETU WENDIMU
