The project "The Toukoul Friends of Esho" aims to educate the children of the village of Esho, by improving the living conditions of families and food security.

Esho is a mountain village of 4500 inhabitants located 300 kilometers south of Addis Ababa in Ethiopia. It is spread over about 450 hectares. Here some families live on less than one euro a day. Most of the population lives in the traditional house: Toukoul. 

In consultation with the village women leader and the chief of the village, we initiated this project.

The project objectives are:

1) Improving children's education by:
- completing of the construction of the school
- supplying desks, notebooks and pens
- remunerating teachers who are currently teaching voluntarily
- hiring a third teacher


2) Access to drinking water for all with the completion of the water supply system, whose construction was initiated but never completed.


3) Food security by:
- diversifying income sources for the 33 poorest families in the village with the creation of small businesses and the supply of two sheeps (male and female for reproduction).
- The construction of a crop irrigation system that will allow harvesting two to three times a year instead of once today due to the six month dry season.

Where: Esho (Wolayta, Ethiopia)
