AYAA 2018 Online Donation Drive

Greetings AYAA Members and Friends:

We send our deepest appreciation to our members and friends from all over the world who contributed to help build the Library Media Center for our brothers and sisters at our wonderful, Atse Yohannes School!

During last year’s reunion in Portland, Oregon, the board decided to work on the following two-year plan:

1. By the summer of 2017:

 Add necessary furniture inside the beautiful library building- This plan was completed because of you and shelves donated from one of our own alumni,

Ato Daniel Mebrahtu.

2. By summer 2018:

 Furnish the Hadera Computer Room with 15 - 30 computers.

 The board decided to skip this year’s reunion to focus on online fundraising.
The slogan is, “One person, one laptop!”

Our Chairperson, Memher Aebeyo Abraha, is traveling this summer to Ethiopia to finish the job we began.

In conclusion, the AYAA Mekelle Board and the principal of Atse Yohannes, Ato Tewlde, are thankful for your generous donations and “not forgetting where you come from.”

Best regards,

AYAA Board and Advisors
