What can you do?

To keep Interlakes running, support from the Netherlands is indispensable. The budget from the Netherlands is about 35,000 euros annually, for things like: support for poorer students, salary costs, insurance, tickets and special projects. In addition, we hope for additional income so that the school can continue to grow and have more impact over time.

Would you like to contribute to this wonderful cause?
Become a friend of Interlakes! You donate a minimum of 40 euros per year via an authorization. As a gift, you will receive the book “Only Your Love Lets Me Live” (publisher Boekencentrum, €18.99) completely free of charge.
Also, along with a newsletter, you will be sent a series of cards each year with photos of the beautiful Ethiopian countryside.

It is also possible to sponsor a student from Interlakes (35 euros per month), who otherwise would not be able to attend the education at our school.
