About Us

Agazi is the name of a school located in Adigrat, Tigray, Ethiopia. Agazi School has been more of a need for support from Alumni and friends. The number of students joining the school has increased in the past few years and the school budget per student has dwindled and the cost of running the school has substantially increased. Nevertheless, students and teachers of the school are defying the difficult conditions they face and carry on their daily school works. They need our support to facilitate their education, and to overcome their challenging circumstances.

Agazi Alumni Association, is a membership association of former students of  the Agazi Elementary school and Comprehensive High School in Adigrat, Tigray-Ethiopia. It was founded, informally in 1963 by few concerned ex-students of the schools and became legally operational in 1964 Eth. C in accordance with the Ethiopian civil code, article 404.

The Association at its initial stage was operating with the limited objective of providing material and financial support for meeting some of the material constraints faced by  Aga’azi School, such as teaching aids, reference and text books, library shelves, class room desks, tables and chairs etc. The activities  of the Association, however, extended beyond its primary objectives to various community development activities, such as participating in literacy campaign, water and sanitation works. As a result, the Association, could galvanize the support of a growing number of new members residing in different parts of  Ethiopia and abroad, who were committing their resources and knowledge for improving the standard of the school, by furnishing the school’s class rooms with desks, chairs and tables and the school library with books and shelves. Available sources also indicate that, apart from these efforts, founding members and supporters of the Association had participated in literacy campaign through which up to 20,000 people were believed to have benefited.

With the coming to power of the Derg regime in 1974 and the subsequent political changes, however,  the founding members and supporters of Agazi Alumni could not push their development agenda forward and their movement was stopped until year …….  , as the core leaders, members and supporters became victims of  Mengistu’s unjust detention, intimidations and killings. In spite of these challenges, these good intentions still remained in the minds of their followers and were being perused in different ways until the oppressive Derg Regime came to an end.

The advent of EPRDF and the new political life in the country provided members of Agazi Alumni with the opportunity to pursue the development agendas of their predecessors  freely and the Association came to life again in year in 1993 E.C when it was dully re-registered by the Tigray Regional Bureau of Justice as a local NGO with development goals and missions similar to the earlier one. Of course, this is a great achievement of the second generation founding members and supporters of the Association, yet, it still lacks proper coordination and organizational structure with clearly defined bylaw. Due to these core reasons, it has been led by volunteers, who devote some of their time and energy to take care of office management at the head quarter in Adigrat and administering the occasional material assistances that come from various sources in the name of Agazi School. Thus its activities became more of a spontaneous nature thereby limiting the much advanced role that it could play.

  1. Très beau texte, sans doute l’un des meilleurs postés ici… Enfin, ce n’est que mon humble avis de fidèle lecteur… Je crois mieux comprendre votre façon d’écrire, votre univers, à l’évocation de ces souvenirs et de cette métamorphose…

  5. How was this allowed to happened? Didn't the new tyrant and IMF's Chief Chef save they would be treated well and detained in a villa on Aljazeera? Where is Gbagbo?

  6. I agree with you on this one. The internet along with blogging have also become a part of who I am. Without blogging, I don’t know how else I would’ve get rid of my frustrations, thoughts or feelings. It really helps getting your thoughts into order..-= blackhuff´s last blog .. =-.

  7. I liken this "feature" to those infuriating animated popups that have infested network TV programming. Guys, the embedded video is the star here. Why distract its viewers with more clutter? This "feature" is insulting to both the creator and the viewer. Please treat your and my audience with a bit of respect. Two thumbs down.

  10. dit :The Absent Game…Concerning me and my husband we’ve owned additional MP3 players over the years than I can count, which include Sansas, iRivers, iPods (typical & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of gamers….

  11. Hey Kim – I wouldn’t worry about it too much…just eat at places that are full of locals eating and make sure what you eat is freshly prepared. That should generally keep you safe from the Delhi belly! And I wish you both luck with the Rickshaw Run…should be amazing!

  13. Ancora più grave dei bug di Fedora è quello di oneopensource e i messaggi che vengono continuamente segati senza motivo … questo è il terzo che scrivo, chissà se arriverà …

  14. For the reason that the YouTube videos are posted at this place same like I also embed YouTube video code at my own web page, because it is trouble-free to obtain embedded code.

  15. hello there…Simply a smiling visitant here to share the love (:, btw great design. “Treat the other man’s faith gently it is all he has to believe with.” by Athenus….

  16. Fantastic web site. Plenty of helpful information here. I’m sending it to some pals ans also sharing in delicious. And of course, thank you on your sweat!

  17. Lovely LO's! Good for you for scrapping the not so happy also. It is life, after all. Love how you have used this MME. The new stuff is so great this CHA. Poor little fellow! I love your title and how you journaled on the tags! Great take on the challenge! 🙂

  18. I am an uneducated blogger, Mike. That's why you shouldn't take my word for anything. And if I'm going to claim that the overwhelming scientific consensus is wrong I better damn well provide some credible sources. You are claiming MANY warming trends of equal or greater magnitude than the present over the last 2000 years. What are you basing that on? It needs to be better than an uneducated blogger.

  19. "NeedSleep" is just one of many unobviousnesses. Understanding foreign code is so hard… but I try and try and something became clear.I don't write a lot of code 'cause I don't understand yet what I should do.And that protocol is useless for other as it is very specific and there I should use ActiveX control to connect to. As I see, in this way there is not cross-platform.

  20. Mi sa che stavolta le cose si mettono molto male!Adesso bisognerà debunkare pure i servizi segreti francesi e dell’Uzbekistan!Inoltre, la foto che quel Marine americano ha scattato al Pentagono è veramente clamorosa; si vede un buco piccolissimo e tutti (ma proprio tutti) i pilasti in cemento armato perfettamente integri!!!!Perseverare è diabolico …

  21. , “I can’t confirm or deny whether your brother has MRSA or not, but you don’t have to clean your Grandmother’s house with bleach…”so….there ya go. THANKS FOR YOUR COMMENTS!

  22. Awwwww it does get better! Promise. Even though Boogie hasn’t been here that long you still need some “me” time. I’m sure Daddy is helping out plenty, so no need to even go there. Just take each day as they come and relax. relate. release.Ana’s last blog post..

  23. I’m referring to the spirit of the enlightenment, that man can transform himself and move to a higher level. This is a broad subject and will require much meditation on my part.As a parting comment, it’s not for nothng that the horrid scenes from a Clock Work Orange were illustrated with Beethovens “Ode to Joy” (more like ODE TO SATAN)

  24. “As far as deployment goes, we do the same thing as you, a search and replace on the sql dump. We do have it automated through a deployment shell script, though.”I’d like to learn more about this deployment shell script. Care to write a blog post explaining how it’s done?

  25. An impressive share, I just given this onto a colleague who was doing a little analysis on this. And he in fact bought me breakfast because I found it for him.. smile. So let me reword that: Thnx for the treat! But yeah Thnkx for spending the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and love reading more on this topic. If possible, as you become expertise, would you mind updating your blog with more details? It is highly helpful for me. Big thumb up for this blog post!

  26. Les recomiendo Calígula de Tinto Brass, con actores convincentes, Malcolm McDowell, Hellen Mirren, Peter O´Toole… fantásticos decorados y una puesta en escena estupenda. Y además de excitarse, aprenderán un poco de historia que nunca viene mal

  27. giving respect & thanks? to the animal is always recommended but plumevine’s comments here are correct when speaking about ordinary mass produced meat. The only way your energy of thanks & respect will really align with the animal is when you are eating one that has been organically raised and humanely treated & killed. No amount of thanks will change the negativity & pain from a mass produced animal raised in cruelty & fearPeace

  28. Hai detto bene, un perfetto cantastorie, un narratore a tutto tondo, di quelli con la trama addomesticata ai propri ordini.. uno che ti butta un dettaglio là con nonchalance in mezzo al nulla e lo utilizza, alla fine, per fare un epilogo DA PAURA.

  29. My first concert was a Jackson 5 concert, too….. like you field and others of a certain age…. feel like his music was the sound track to my youth….. Through his music, he will always be with us. His death is sad because he was too young and it was so sudden. But also, because the icons that died….., Michael, Farrah, and Ed, signal a passing of our own lives in such an abrupt and finite way…..I sincerely hope the media will leave his children alone and his family can mourn, treated with dignity.

  30. RENATO M.V. · mercoledì, 12 dicembre 2012, 9:57 pml’ultima trasmissione dell’infedele, la ricordero’. gad e la camusso hanno parlato per un momento della non gestione dell’euro,con conseguente aumento dei prezzi e diminuzione di stipendi e pensioni. da li’ parte la crisi il berlusca ha delle colpe sostanziali. la camusso pero’ non ne ha mai parlato in passato, forse perche’ anche le coop hanno fatto quel maledetto giochetto?

  31. 67.Hyde,I agree. I think China is in a vulnerable spot moving forward. If they get sucked into the coming war with Iran they could find themselves on the losing end.

  32. I have the time, I really like this pita bread recipe (which works well using all freshly ground whole wheat), and I like to marinate the tomato slices

  33. Great web site you’ve got here.. It’s hard to find high quality writing like yours these days. I honestly appreciate people like you! Take care!!

  34. hello!,I like your writing very much! share we communicate more about your post on AOL? I need an expert on this area to solve my problem. May be that’s you! Looking forward to see you.

  35. – Excellent snap. I know exactly what you mean about the dad holding his attention on an event longer than the kid does. Will we ever learn to ask what THEY want to do? Doubt it. Ah, sure they can do their stuff when they have kids, right?

  36. I would say it’s the same reason a child has a teddy bear: it makes them feel safe. His security pillow is something that makes him feel comfortable anywhere, regardless of the fact that he is twenty-seven and at an age when most people have abandoned objects like this. Or maybe he’s just gotten the pillow worn in just right, so that it’s perfectly fit to his head.

  37. / SÓ SUCESSO!!!SÃO ELAS:*Lê,lê,lê*Tá combinado*Bará berê*Vai ter balanga*Tô morando sozinho*A nossa música*Minha herançaGD Star Ratingloading…

  38. Let me correct your post title since it has little ERROR. It should read: "Watch Shows and Movies on YouTube If You Are From USA – Other Countries Can Fuck Off"

  39. If I were a conservative I would never vote for Rudolf Giuliani. As a liberal I cant bring myself to vote for Hillary Clinton. I cannot imagine a worse situation than having to choose between these two slimy incompetents. If I believed I’d pray.

  40. Sweet blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News. Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Thank you

  41. I was disappointed at the designs they picked. I’ve never designed a building in my life, but i feel fairly confident that i could design a nicer looking building. I thought they’d make it taller too. They should introduce a number of designs for the public to vote on instead of picking one that nobody likes

  42. J’ai un fan-club très féminin sur ce post, et très en verve, tant mieux ^^Je m’en vais creuser un peu le question, car ce n’est absolument pas ma spécialité. Mais maintenant qu’on m’a donné du Maître, n’est-ce pas…

  43. But if we formed our own team where none of us are that good, we’d at least not make each other look bad, and next you thing you know we’d be a whole team of Shane Blacks!

  44. I’m really impressed with your writing skills and also with the format to your blog. Is that this a paid subject or did you customize it yourself? Anyway stay up the excellent quality writing, it is uncommon to look a great weblog like this one nowadays..

  45. Aaah bugger.How long did it take?Back to crystal sets, shortwave radios and one time pads.Time to brush up on my morse code.It was uh, three long three short three long, wasn’t it?

  46. Well, last year was about half a degree (C) warmer than the 1901-2000 mean. And yes, that includes all those people who were complaining about how cold it was in December.I know it’s hard to experience a .6 degree increase in global average temperature compared to a mean, but that’s why we have data.

  47. Thanks, Marc, for finally, at long last, stopping by!I don’t even know what’s broken, myself. However, I do find myself thinking a bit differently about many things now than I did a couple years ago. Time with my family is, somehow, more valuable. The time I have left on Earth is, somehow, more tenuous. Everything, as is appropriate, is merely temporary — except relationships and love and my soul. And that’s good, I think.Rich

  48. Anglais spécialiste de français, je me suis posé la même question… Il faut signaler que les « lib-dems » sont un amalgame des « Liberals », parti très ancien, et des « Social Democrats », parti formé dans les années 1980. Au moment de leur fusion, toujours dans les années 1980, le nouveau parti s’est baptisé « Liberal Democrat ». Autant dire que tous deux éléments de son appellation sont des substantifs, et l’un des termes ne qualifie pas l’autre.
