The School of Komame is a currently functioning school located in the desert region of Afar in Ethiopia. Komame is a new city that has been developing slowly due to the growth of this school. The owner of the school, Beletew Yadete is improving the quality of education given to the Afar children. This is consequence of cultural conflict between two ethnic groups that habit the Afar region, these are mainly distinguished by their difference in religious views. One of these ethnic groups follow the Christian religion while the other follows the Islamic religion. The children enrolled in this school are Muslim; Beletew, however, is Christian. Previous conflict between his people and the Afar people have lead him to open this school and educate orphan children. The Komame School has grown, and will continue to grow in these following years. Along with GoDesign, a proposal for the expansion and addition of classrooms and living quarters was created.
