We can Transform Tigray

The Tigrai Grand Conference is different from the other conferences as it serves as a highly informal platform for intellectual exchanges on all issues including issues considered ‘taboo’ and ‘strategic’..It has strong focus on strategic foresight and actionable solutions to problems the Tigrai and Tigreans face. The structure of the Tigrai Grand Conference is designed in a such manner that incumbent leaders of the public, political parties and private sector are encouraged to listen more than they speak. All participants, including heads of the regional state, bureau heads, political leaders would attend and participate as intellectuals not as functionaries and officials. GSTS conducted two successful Tigrai Grand Conference in 2018 and 2019.

Summer tutorial programs for 3600+ students

In 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 G.C,  Mekelle university in collaboration with GSTS, DoT Ethiopia and Regional Educational bureau of Tigray delivered a very successful summer Tutoring-Mentoring program for more than 3600 grade 10th and 12th students, who were selected from Tigray high schools based on 70:30 current curriculum strategy. The program was completely owned and run by Mekelle University starting from 2017 GC. It selects the top scoring high school students taking national exam at grade 10 and 12 to increase their understanding in science and technology and help prepare them to achieve excellent results and join university. These excellent students are then expected to help students in their respective schools and neighborhoods. Our continuous assessment of the program shows the tutorial programs are bringing up the much needed change in improving the student’s results and their understanding of the essence of education in general and of science in particular. There is a plan and trials to expand the program to Adigrat University (ADU) and Axum University (AXU).
