Former Model Builds A Dream School In Ethiopia


Atti Worku, a former computer geek-turned-Miss Universe contestant who graduated cum laude from Columbia University with a BA in sustainable development, had a dream to help children in her native Ethiopia.

A decade ago Seeds of Africa was merely an idea Worku had to create an educational program in Adama, Ethiopia, and ultimately build what she now calls the Dream School, a school meeting international educational standards for Ethiopian students.

Seeds of Africa Foundation is a community enhancement and development program that seeks to create a sustainable and independent Africa through education, stability and mentoring for gifted, underprivileged youth, so that they may become leaders of change in their continent.

Worku planted the seeds for, her dream school back in 2005 by initially starting her organization. By 2008 the program and school was up and running.
