Partnership to improve children’s rights
For several years, Bech-Bruun has had a partnership with Save the Children Denmark aiming at facilitating schooling and education for children in Ethiopia.
So far, the partnership has resulted in two new schools. In 2012, the partnership was extended until 2017. During this period, the partnership will support 11 schools and ensure better teaching facilities and materials as well as improve the education of teachers.
