Our Goal

To make sure that all Ethiopians have access to quality education free of foreign aid by 2030.

About imagine1day

Working under Ethiopia’s public education system and in partnership with the country’s federal, regional and district government education offices, we have implemented programs and activities that have significantly improved the education of over 265,000 children annually.

Since its inception, imagine1day has created access to quality education for over 93,488 primary-age out-of-school children in Ethiopia and dramatically improved quality of education, community engagement and government leadership across ten districts and 507 schools.

Pillars of Intervention


Education is the focus of all imagine1day operations through the four essential sub-pillars. Our education program addresses both the demand and supply barriers to children’s education.

Imagine1day focus on creating access, improving quality, efficiency and equity.


WASH is our second pillar. The three aspects of WASH can act as an immense barrier to education for many children. Fetching water is often a girl’s responsibility. Girls in a family unit can be expected to walk for hours each day, preventing them from accessing education.


Child Protection (CP) and Gender-Based Violence (GBV) prevention programs and services ensures the safeguarding of children and GBV prevention. Gender-based violence protection programs support raising communities’ awareness of GBV prevention, mitigation, and response.


Leadership is our most important pillar and is a catalyst for creating bold, visionary, and goal-oriented leaders committed to transforming the education system.
