The Kololo School was created by Ethiopia Reads for children living in hard-to-reach farming villages in the Kembata Tembaro Zone in South West Ethiopia (SNNPR).
Situated on a site only accessible from a dirt track road - to a point - and then by foot, the success of the project is due to perseverance and an ethic of team work between Ethiopia Reads staff and Kololo villagers.
Opened in 2012, the school now serves around 300 children, aged 4 to 11.
The first thing that literally hits you when heading into Countryside living in this region can be hard. But Ethiopia Reads has created from scratch, a haven of fun learning for both the children and teachers at Kololo School.
