Special thanks to the ASEJE (Association Pour L` Education Des Jeunes Et Des Enfants) for their generous donation towards graduation costs.

A Huge Thank You!

Thanks to everyone who made donations this year. The library has been filled with new books, students graduating from primary to secondary school have received new uniforms, so many clothes and bags were donated to the Centre.

Centre Students

Students are working hard every day. They go to their school for half of the day and when they are not at school they come to the Centre where they continue to study. All the students are keen to do well and will always help each other. Currently the Centre provides support for over 40 students. This includes 3 meals a day, all schools expenses such as uniform, books and stationary. The Centre itself is a safe place for students to spend time where there is a library of books and a small computer centre. Students enjoy working at the Centre as well as spending time together in a caring environment.

Many thanks for your continued support

13 Years of NDCC

13 Years ago a group of students and teachers from Ryton Comprehensive School travelled to Ethiopia and during their visit they founded the New Day Children’s Centre. 13 years on the Centre continues to support disadvantaged young people in Bahir Dar.

Happy Birthday NDCC and thanks to everyone for your continued support.

The London Marathon 2017

On April 23rd 2017 Will Luker will be running the London Marathon in support of the New Day Children’s Centre and the DEC.

This will be the second time that Will has completed the 26 mile course in aid of the NDCC and we would like to thank Will for all he has done to help the project. If you would like to support Will please click the button below.

This year half of the funds raised will go to the DEC East Africa Crisis Appeal. As East Africa experiences the worst drought and famine this century support is desperately needed in the region. DEC member charities are already delivering life-saving assistance in all affected countries, however more help is needed to reduce the scale and severity of the crisis.
