Academic Result


In the last Ethiopian academic year of 2004, we had seven 8th Grade students and five grade 10 students. These students were taking National examination in April 2012 and their result was notified at the end of August 2012. The first fruit of Bridge of Hope children’s Village is very encouraging. All our first fruits score a high grade, despite the fact that they were highly vulnerable and psychologically affected before they admitted to Bridge of Hope children’s Village.



Such a result shows that our effort to take care of these destitute children is a true remedy for orphan and vulnerable children, who were negatively, affected in their early age. It is a reflection of our genuine and diligent commitment to give proper care for our Children. Look at the following result with photos:
