Fairfax Avenue.
The Foundation is proud to celebrate its 4th Anniversary of providing educational opportunities to underprivileged children in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.  Through the hard work of our committed staff and volunteers, we opened the doors of The Fregenet Kidan Lehitsanat School in the fall of 2004, and enrolled 31 children ages 4 to 6 from a small and impoverished community in Addis Ababa.  Now in the school's fourth year of operation, the number of students enrolled has grown to 170.
So, please join in the celebration of this moment, wishing the Foundation a "Happy 4th Anniversary!"
