One of the main 'projects' of MYBAOBAB is to sponsor the building of the St.Francis of Assisi School at Massawa.
The brainchild of Father Protasio and his team, a group of Catholic Franciscan monks.
On the 16th, October 2007, the first part of the Project was inaugurated and on the 5th January 2010 this 'project' saw completion. This is a gigantic scheme which Father Protasio has undertaken courageously. Father Protasio must be congratulated and admired as through his tireless efforts and sheer stubbornness he has managed to stir the sympathy and generosity of friends around the world to continue and support him in this well worthy cause. This is an effort which will enable many young Eritreans from all walks of life and Creeds, to educate themselves and enable them to achieve the necessary skills in life especially in the Tourist Industry which is steadily developing in Eritrea and particularly at Massawa.
Massawa was originally declared the Capital of Eritrea, during the Italian occupation before being transferred to the Highlands in the beautiful city of Asmara. It was bombarded heavily during the war of independence from Ethiopia but now with steady and unrelenting efforts it is re-establishing itself as the future Sea-side Resort of the Red Sea.
MYBAOBAB needs your help to continue with this 'project' which is sponsored by the Catholic Church, masses of ex-patriates and this website.
Your much needed support is invaluable.
Please help us by making a donation online, using PAYPAL .You do not need to be out of pocket...Any monies received will be greatly appreciated and will go fully and without any deductions, to the 'project'.
JUST REMEMBER as Father Protasio says...... It is a Drop that makes the OCEAN !
