Transforming Young girls live with Technology


Bethel Mekane Yesus Girls School (BMYS)*, is the oldest all girls’ school in Addis Ababa Ethiopia established in 1924 (1916 E.C). For almost 100 years the school's mission have been to empower young girls with knowledge, skills, and opportunities that will help them shape a better future for themselves and their communities.

AYBS Alumni Association U.S. chapter is formed by former students who has attended the school. The association is committed to continue the bond of sisterhood while helping to improve the quality of education for the next generation at BMYS. 

The association is free yet your donation will help us support current students. Your donation will be dedicated 100% to the projects that are identified by current students and administrators to improve quality of education while building strong girls. 


Current project: 


AYBS Alumni Association U.S. Chapter is partnering with Camara Education to continue to uphold our commitment to education. By partnering with Camara our goal is to raise $11,000 to purchase 40 PC computers for BMYS Computer Lab. In today's rapidly advancing world, access to computers and digital resources is crucial for preparing the current students for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. Unfortunately, due to financial constraints, the school is struggling to provide students with the technological resources they deserve.


Your contribution will not only enable us to bridge the digital divide but also delivering essential digital skills to around 1000 girls. We aim to ensure that they leave school with the skills needed to thrive in the 21st century marketplace; able to use a spreadsheet and word-processing program, and to use digital research tools and the internet. You will also be contributing to sustainable development of education, technology and society in Ethiopia. Any contribution, no matter how small, will help us achieve our goal and make a significant impact in the lives of our students.
