Mollie Robbins was a passionate teacher who cared deeply about women and children getting an education, no matter where they’re from.

Sadly, Mollie passed away in 2016. But her family made a bequest in her name so that her legacy will live on forever.

The Mollie Robbins Kindergarten is currently being built in the rural town of Semera, Ethiopia. It's giving children a safe place to learn and grow so they can have the best start possible in life.

Mollie’s legacy will change the future for the next generation of kids in Ethiopia.

Imagine what yours could do.

“I would urge people to leave a bequest in their Will. It is not difficult. You don’t have to
leave a massive amount, you can just leave whatever you can afford. I certainly did. 
"If you think about what your legacy can do after you’ve gone, it’s just continuing to
support something you believe in."
