TULUU DIMMITU FOUNDATION

Our Mission

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.

Tuluu Dimmitu Foundation is a non-profit-organization established to improve the lives of the children in Oromia, Ethiopia in the areas of health; such as malaria, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). HIV and AIDS are both a major problem that continues to effect poverty and illness in the country. There is astonishing number AIDS orphans that continue to die at a very young age. Providing a better education will help increase the health of the Ethiopian children and adults.
The Tuluu Dimmitu Foundation strives to achieve a small scale income and the establishment of education for both the children and adults. It is no secret that Ethiopia is one of the poorest countries in the world. The existing schools are poorly built out of thatch and mud, which makes learning difficult. Building a school that will last for many years will increase the value of education and the ability to teach more professionally. A sturdy school with a good foundation is the first step to better educating the children of Oromia.
It is important for the children of Oromia to gain a better education, so they can have a chance at a better life. The children want an education so bad that they walk fifteen miles to school. However, the girls are forced to drop out of school after the eighth grade and get married because there is not enough money for them to finish their high school education. Giving the children the education they desire and deserve will eventually provide Oromia with more knowledgeable adults that are able to better provide for future generations.
Tuluu Dimmitu Foundation is striving to build an eight room school in Oromia. There are blue-prints already drawn up for the new school. The school will be made of brick and mortar. Fundraising of the school began in 2008 and we hope to reach our goal by the end of 2011 with a total of fifty thousand dollars. The design of the school allows for doors and windows, which currently do not exist in the school buildings of Oromia. The new education center will help the community learn how to practice good health care. Business and agriculture techniques will also be taught, so that the agricultural resources in the area can be turned into businesses and an economy can begin to be formed. The most important life skill the children will learn is to become self-sufficient.

Tuluu Dimmitu Foundation has a 501C3 no-profit status. All contributions are tax deductible.
