Main aim of the charity

The main aim of I volunteer is to protect children and focus on positive behavior specially as a developing country citizen, and also by supporting them to go to school with out any shortage of school materials so that they can focus and learn and be a person with a dream.

How the employee got involved and why

Right after completing a higher level education and started the work life I realized that not everyone is born in to a life of opportunity and sometimes just the country we grow up in will dictate a life of hardship and poverty. Those of us that do live in countries where housing, education, safety and health care are basic and upheld rights have a responsibility to assist those that struggle for these things on a daily basis. So as an adult with opportunities I decided to contribute something to the society with my extra time, I tried to participate in different welfare activities while in campus as well as after graduating, but finally out of all different social affairs (Children, elders and prisoners)my heart was taken by the adorable and adventurous children with a bright future and filled with ability to impact globally. In fact the most important thing to change a country's future is to work on the coming generation, i.e ensuring that children are getting the right educational background.

What work does the employee do for charity?

We have selected a school Called “Destiny Future Academy” as a startup, for they have more than forty students that have given scholarships in the school, Where they live in very places around “ Gofa camp Addis Ababa”, these students need serious help in moral and ethical supports. We have prepared a class that help them to find their purpose , vision and to develop their skills. In all Saturday classes we have been giving them different trainings with our volunteers and different guests. Our volunteers were involving in playing with the students and giving them personal advises one to one with them. The students have snacks and soft drinks in all Saturday class break times. (Biscuits, burgers , soft drinks and waters were the menu).We believe that food and fun can make our mind active to understand different things well. “ i volunteer “ believe that this students need to have good meal and fun for their success. In the other day when the new fiscal year processed , We gave them education material to help their mind to be free of worries about their new year of school expense.
