#GivingTuesday Campaign 2022: Water and Toilets for Gondar Communities and Schools

Water+Toilets+Your Dollars= Healthy Children.

You don't need to be a math wizard to help us solve this equation. #GivingTuesday







Give Today and your donation will be matched for the first $2000 raised through Wednesday, November 30.

The Corvallis Sister Cities Association-Gondar Council invites you to join us in raising a GOAL of  $11,500 during our #GivingTuesday Campaign:

a)  $4,500 is to be raised of the  $8,500 ($4,000 already donated)  needed to build toilets for the Walaj village’s kindergarten classrooms (they currently have none), and

b) $7,000 is needed for materials and repairs of wells in 9 villages (without funds) that currently are without access to clean water in rural areas of Gondar.


Toilets for Walaj Kindergarten Classrooms 


Toilets (3 stalls each for both boys and girls) are needed for this 2-classroom kindergarten building. The toilets will consist of its own separate building adjacent to the school. The kindergarten classrooms were built in 2019.


Cost of Project = $8,500. Funds Needed Currently = $4,500.  ($4,000 already raised from a recent event.)   Donate today and know that you are helping to improve the health and hygiene of children in Gondar?

“I am glad that I am leading this school. Specifically the Kg classrooms and their supportive teaching materials are well organized. I am only concerned about their toilet because children are having easily transmitted disease due to polluted environment. So it is very big need to have toilet for them.” Denbulu Teafaye, the director of Walaj school:

Access to Clean Water for Gondar Communities

Since 2005, CSCA-Gondar Council helped build 20 well/spring developments in rural villages of Gondar. A recent evaluation of these wells was conducted, resulting in 9 of these wells needing repairs to be able to function properly beyond what these villages can afford.  Many wells in need of repairs serve schools.

Residents in villages with those wells in disrepair are currently needing to walk up to 3 miles per day to get water that may be polluted.

Cost of Project (materials and labor): $7000

“I also appreciate The Council that has approved your recommendation and its commitment to maintain the water wells and spring developments, that provides great benefit to the poor community. Furthermore it is a noble task for the welfare of humanity.”Biyaylgn Kassa
