2- Sponsor a Child
The children of Fresh and Green Academy attend school all year round so they are able to eat throughout the summer.
The Academy is of vital importance to the children it serves because this school is the only place they eat. While classes are scaled back during the summer, the children still attend school from 8am till 5pm, attending both academic and extra curricular classes. Summer is also a time many volunteers visit and help with English language and other life skills. Your donations through our “Child Sponsorship Program” help keep the school functioning all year round so it can continue to provide a safe and loving environment and the nourishment and care needed for the children to survive and thrive.
3- Take Part in an Upcoming Event or Volunteer.
We are planning events all summer and looking for enthusiastic individuals to join our board!
We are planning fundraising events in San Jose, CA, Portland, OR and New York City, NY in the upcoming months. If you are in one of those areas, and would like to join a planning committee or volunteer in another capacity, please contact Trish at trish@FriendsOfFreshAndGreen.com for more information.
We are also in the process of growing our board! If you have passion and are willing to “roll up your sleeves” and help with fundraising and some organizational work, we want you!

A strong Friends of Fresh and Green Academy board is crucial for the survival of Fresh and Green Academy in Ethiopia. The work the board does is not only rewarding, but is changing the lives of some pretty amazing children who would not even have a chance at life if it were not for the school.
We have a lot of fun coming up with new ideas on how to support the school and welcome your input. As a board member you will be able to use your creativity and connections to change the world.

Thank you so much to Friends of Fresh and Green for making it possible for us to help educate, feed, and provide uniforms for students in an impoverished neighborhood in Ethiopia. What a joy to see the photos, and to receive notes from the students from time to time.
