Corvallis Sister Cities Association: Gondar, Ethiopia

Images from Gondar, Ethiopia


Citizens and city officials from both Corvallis and Gondar have worked jointly to identify mutual goals (primarily on water and education needs) which have formed the basis for C-GSCA’s work plan. To date, efforts have focused on the following:

  • Access to clean drinking water through drilling of wells.
  • Restoration and rehabilitation of Gondar’s watershed area with extensive tree planting.
  • Construction of public toilets and showers for improved sanitation and hygiene.
  • Development of a culture of readers with librarian training and furnishing a diverse set of books for the library at our sister school, Tsadiku Yohannes Elementary School.
  • Improvement in children’s learning through usage of classroom materials and professional development of teachers.
  • Computer literacy for faculty and students with the creation of a computer classroom, installation of computers, and internet access.

We invite you to learn more about our activities and to become involved with our efforts!
