How we Operate

Going to School

The Aysanew Kassa Trust mainly sponsors Azezo's poor students through their Secondary and University education. We work extensively with the Atse Fasil Elementary School, Azezo High School and St Raphel's School for Blind Children and the local community.

We are run entirely by volunteers and have almost no overheads: everything we raise - either through individual donations, events or grants - goes directly towards helping the young people of Ethiopia. Our volunteers in Azezo are instrumental in identifying the needs of the community, liaising with the local councils, schools and our beneficiaries, thereby ensuring that projects match the needs of the local population. There are six trustees in London who meet regularly to monitor and review the activities of the charity, whilst Jean Bailey independently funds a yearly visit to Azezo to meet the local committee.
