Teffo Cheffo 2007

Teffo Cheffo

In the autumn of 2006 the construction of a school in Teffo Cheffo village in Alaba Special Woreda began. One other school in this area, Asore, was also built by the “Let’s Build a School in Africa” campaign. The district was chosen again due to significant scarcity of elementary schools, overcrowded classes and long distances traveled by children in order to reach a school.

The school is located about 300 kilomoters south of the capital city of Addis Ababa and 12 kilometers from the closest paved road. Construction finished in May 2007 and the school was oepend in November with the Czech Ambassador to Ethiopia, Ing. Zdenka Dobiáš, in attendance.
