Six Baer Essentials is a registered not-for-profit located in New York. The NFP raises money to support Tom and Sally Baer who support various educational programs in an area just outside Addis Abeba, Ethiopia.
The Baer’s support the following:
English Language. It is critical that children are given an opportunity to learn English from a qualified English teacher. All 8th and 10th grade national exams (that allow a student to continue their education), are given in English as are all classes taught from grade 8 on including University. It is with this in mind that the Baer’s have always provided English language training for the children and local teachers.
Berhan Academy. The school is inspired, managed and taught by Ethiopians, with some support of the Baer team, offers reduced-fee education, free textbooks, additional English training, a full working library, health education, building maintenance and construction, and more to over 80 local children.
Community. The library that was created entirely by support of friends of the Baer’s and is run by Ethiopians, is open to the public, and general first aid is available 24/7.
We also support 30 children by providing their education, uniforms, fees and supplies, character development and English training, and providing a library, first aid, clothing, mattresses, and general emergency funding for medical and family crisis situations. They have supported these particular 30 children since 2009 and hope to stay with them throughout their entire academic careers.
100% of all 6BE donations go directly to support the efforts by the Baer’s to sustain programs and children in Dahley, Ethiopia. No admin or other costs are taken from donations 100% goes to the their work! All personal and administrative expense are provided by the Baer Family. Thanks for your support!
