Empress Mentewab School is an private, non-profit elementary school in the remote northern Ethiopian Highlands, close to the Simien Mountains. To learn more about the school, please see the website:
The schoolchildren in the Postcard Club particularly enjoy receiving typical single-view tourist postcards. Other postcards that would interest children aged 9 and 10 would also be appropriate.
Please do not send:
- sunset or night-time postcards (too dark to see much)
- handmade postcards
- advertising cards
- cards with multi-views (it's difficult to see anything clearly on them, the pictures being so small)
- greetings cards (such as for Christmas, New Year, Valentine's Day or Easter)
- shaped cards
Please use stamps on your postcard and do not put the postcard in an envelope.
Please put the date on your postcard and write an interesting message.
The school does not do direct swaps. However, the Headmistress, Kate Fereday Eshete, does. Her username is: KateFeredayEshete.
