Meet the team

What differentiates Tesfa Ethiopia is that majority of its members have a direct tie to Ethiopia. Our origin to the cause creates an authentic and genuine interest in eliminating barriers and ensuring children across Ethiopia have access to quality education. Many of its members were once the students we are reaching out to now: who understand the importance and power of education. This translates to a desire to give back to the community that undoubtedly shaped who many of us are today.

Our mission

We empower children of Ethiopia by bridging the gap between needs and resources to foster an environment where every child can reach their full potential.
