Introduction to Wonfel
Wonfel is a US based nonprofit organization with 501(C)(3) status registered in California in 2018. It is established to respond to the growing socio-economic needs of millions of Ethiopians; and its core focus areas are education and health. According to regional reports, educational coverage and quality is inadequate in many areas of Ethiopia. Wonfel believes education is a powerful tool which can be used to change the world; because a good education makes our children to have a deeper understanding of their surrounding and the wider world to become productive citizens.
Mission and value
Providing education to every child is the most important civic duty to a nation.
Wonfel believes it is our collective moral and social responsibility to ensure each child has equitable opportunity to succeed.
