Mission Statement

Friends of Fresh and Green Academy Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation, was created to ensure the continuation and success of Fresh and Green Academy, a school for impoverished children in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Our mission is to provide the Academy’s students with daily meals, a well-rounded education and access to adequate medical care under the guidance of the Academy’s director and founder, Muday Mitiku. Friends of Fresh and Green also supports the “Mothers Cooperative,” an on-site program created to provide personal empowerment for the students’ mothers by helping them to earn their own money, learn new skills and provide for their families’ future.
