Summer of 2018 Melat Lemma visited Adama which is located in the Oromia region of Ethiopia. She used donation money to purchase an abundance of school supplies to donate towards Seeds of Africa Elementary school. She interviewed children from 6-10 years of age and learned about the school lifestyle in Ethiopia. Seeds of Africa Elementary is a private school that provides free quality education towards children who are in extreme poverty.
Fortunately, Melat had left over donation money to purchase notebooks and pencils to pass out to unprivileged children in poor neighborhoods. She had also bought large quantities of bread and water to give to homeless people in different churches and mosques of Adama.
