The 3rd year Anniversary of the Tsehay Zewde Memorial Scholarship Fund for visually impaired female students at Addis Ababa University (AAU) was celebrated on Monday on February 24th. Speaking at the celebration Admassu Tsegay, President of AAU announced his personal commitment to the project aimed at establishing a fully equipped resource center for visually impaired female students next to their dormitories where they can study or receive training in the dedicated space.
The resource center will be equipped with an audio library with modern technology and the students will receive tailored courses to improve their English and computer skills. Addis Ababa University will be donating computers for the project.
During the celebratory event, there was a poetry reading session as well as touching and inspiring testimonials by the students.
Helen Teshome who was the master of ceremony at the event delivered this year’s leadership and life skills training to 20 fresh students who received their certificate of completion from the president of the university.
That specific training is held every year in October and November to new students who are given a manual in using Braille to help them prepare for the challenges they may face on campus. The manual gives them education on assertiveness, leadership and presentation skills, protection from HIV-AIDS, gender based violence and discrimination.
Tsehay Zewde Memorial Scholarship Fund is a memorial award in the name of the late Tsehay who passed away 16 years ago. Her family is running the scholarship fund. It started in December of 2011 and awarded 100 female students with visual impairment scholarships worth 240,000 birr; 84 from the undergraduate and 16 from the post graduate program, during its first year.
