One of the objectives of Ethiopian Teachers Association (ETA) is to contribute its share in providing quality education to learners. In order attain this objective, ETA has been performing different activities, and one of those activities is organizing conferences. Therefore, ETA organized the 5th Annual Quality Education Conference held from 23-24 June 2017 in Bishoftu in collaboration with UNESCO National office, ActionAid Ethiopia and Federal Technical and Vocational Education and Training Agency. Participants were drawn from different government offices, relevant NGOs, teachers and Regional Teachers’ Association representatives

Seven research papers done by scholars were presented and discussed. One of the research papers were titled “Education Financing and Domestic Resources Mobilization” done by a team of consultants funded by Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (NORAD), facilitated by Actionaid Ethiopia and ETA. ETA mainly played the role of facilitation such as providing support letter for data collection and organizing validation and dissemination workshops.

As part of dissemination, findings of the study were broad casted through Ethiopian television and radio by paying for air time.

It was found out in the study that investors were not contributing to education financing and was considered as untapped area.

As a side event to the conference, there was technological transfer competition among the TVET trainers.

ETA would like to appreciate its stakeholders for they supported the events without which success was impossible.
