The contribution sought to give back to the parents of Hizbawi Serawit School who have been direly affected during these peak times of inflation.
During the donation ceremony which was held on Saturday July 15, at the school premises, Teguest Yilma, Managing Editor of Capital, said that over the years Capital has played a pivotal role in rendering much needed support to the community where need arose.
She further elaborated that the media house has been vocal and keen over the years in improving the educational system as well as in donating educational materials and direct support to parents and students in different institutions across the country.
At the ceremony, Education Bureau heads and relevant government officials appreciated the initiative that Capital took and called on others to follow suit.
SAMANU FMGC is one of the leading basic commodities like edible oil, macaroni and cleaning products manufacturer in Ethiopia.
The association of SMLH – Ethiopia was formed in 2013 by the recipients of the French government’s award of the Legion of Honor in recognition of eminent services rendered to their country and the strengthening of franco-ethiopian bilateral relations.
Textbooks, edible oil, pasta, powder soap and flour were donated to the parents in need under the guidance and selection of the school committee.
