Mitiku's Story: Your 2019 Impact

Blog Archives:

Leaders need investment. They need encouragement – someone to say, ‘I am walking this same path with you.’ That’s why we work to connect our partners around the world, bringing together teachers, principals, and leaders to hear each other’s stories. When leaders have the best possible support, they flourish. And their schools and students flourish with them.

Mitiku is a leader in Christian education in Ethiopia, but often finds his role isolating. In October 2018, we asked him to join us for a training with leaders in Rwanda. He was eager to learn and eager to listen – and now eager to keep going.

“Sometimes, I give up in my initiative to contribute to Christian education in Ethiopia due to various reasons: the communities’ lack of awareness, a misunderstanding of Christian education, or a lack of commitment from people.

After visiting Rwanda and listening to their stories, now I have come to say: problems are everywhere, and I am not the only one. There are also others who are dealing with the same challenges like us.

This helped me to endure with perseverance.”

We celebrate Mitiku’s change in perspective.
