Hibret cultural school has a vision of creating cultural awareness for Young Ethiopian Canadians, and making a difference in the education within Ethiopian schools by supporting them.
Hibret Cultural School’s mission is to help children learn Amharic, the official language of Ethiopia, and to gain an understanding of Ethiopian culture. Our school helps children acquire basic reading and writing skills, and to develop an understanding and appreciation of the difference and similarities in Ethiopian and Canadian culture.
Cultural awareness: Our vision is based on creating cultural awareness and building self-confidence in our students. We do this by emphasising on our 4 goals: Support, Empower, give back, and have fun.
Support: Our vision is to develop a basic understanding of the Ethiopian culture in order to prevent a possible identity crisis.
Empower: We want to empower young Ethiopian-Canadians by teaching them their ethnic backgrounds and help with the challenges they face as Black Canadians.
Giving back: We want to cultivate and engage in giving back purpose to the less fortunate, as this is one of our biggest focuses in teaching our students.
Having Fun: We are committed to make sure have a good time while learning. We incorporate music, cultural dancing, and cooking classes.
