About PIA

Panafric International Academy (PIA) 
No Child is Left Behind




PIA will be the school of choice for families in the Awassa area who are seeking an exceptional education for children. PIA will be recognized as an educational leader – providing enriched programming, inspiring teachers, and a safe, happy, loving and caring learning environment.


Through quality education, active learning, discipline, strong work ethics and commitment, we empower our boys and girls to overcome their academic, economic, social and cultural limitations.


Panafric International Academy was established in 2014. Under the leadership of Mesfin Atlaye and Abebayehu Mesele the school is currently operating on two campuses in Awassa, Ethiopia. The goal in 2017 is to establish a Building Fund to raise much needed monies to build or purchase an existing school sufficient in size to house all students in one location. The Building Fund will allow PIA to educate children from Nursery to Grade 12. We need your help to accomplish this through your generous donations. Donations can be made at DevXChange and income tax receipts will be issued for all donations.
