Diga is one of the ‘wordeas’, or districts in East Wollega zone, Oromia region, Western Ethiopia. Diga is 148 miles West of Addis Ababa, the country's capital city.

Diga is about 24 miles south east of Nekemte, a market town and the capital of the region. Nekemte is also home to the museum of Wollega Oromo culture.

Here, it is a rugged landscape, dominated by two mountains and near to eight rivers.  Most of the people living in Diga are small holder farmers. The schools we want to support are served by an asphalt road. 

We want to support two schools in Diga. One is already supported by Essilor Ltd.

Can you help make sure children in Diga get the education and life chances they deserve through the gift of improved vision?

Yes, I'm ready to Support a School in Diga
