Bridging Gaps, Changing Lives: Addressing Challenges Faced by Ethiopian Israeli Families

Ethiopian Israeli families continue to face significant obstacles, impeding their social and cultural advancement despite various governmental and philanthropic efforts. In fact, more than 35% of Ethiopian families live below the poverty line, and the average Ethiopian family earns 35% less than the average Israeli family.

Recognizing the urgency of this issue, the Conservatory has taken a proactive stance by establishing a special fund to provide scholarships and individualized support to Ethiopian children. By supporting the Conservatory’s efforts, you can help close the gaps that exist between Ethiopian students and their peers, enabling them to overcome adversity and flourish academically and personally.

Promoting Inclusivity

The representation of Ethiopian students at the Conservatory is disproportionately low with only 3 out of 900+ students of Ethiopian descent, solely due to the lack of access they face.

Ethiopian youth deserve equal opportunities for educational and personal enrichment. By supporting an Ethiopian student, you have the power to make a significant difference in their lives.

Music education and learning to play an instrument provide invaluable skills and confidence-building experiences, helping Ethiopian students level the playing field and realize their potential. Additionally, the collaboration between Ethiopian and other students fosters familiarity and builds bridges across Israeli society, promoting inclusivity and understanding.

Empower the Next Generation: Support the Conservatory’s Vision of Inclusion and Accessibility

By contributing to the Ethiopian Scholarship Fund, you enable these talented Ethiopian students to pursue their musical passions, gain access to educational opportunities, and create a brighter future for themselves and their communities. Together, we can ensure that no deserving student is left behind, and that the transformative power of music reaches those who need it most.
