School for Street Children

Often young children are seen leading their special needs family members through the streets begging. These special needs include leprosy, blindness, birth defects, etc. A love filled individual, Rev. Sumaila Sisay, a former math teacher, felt he could help these children by providing classes for them after they finished in the streets. This free school meets in a school that provides space from 4:00 to 7:00 each day, with Rev. Sisay as the supervisor with 3 volunteer teachers. The school has over 100 students, including some younger siblings of the street children. Educational supplies are a constant need, along with occasional stipends for the teachers.
