The Weeknd Donates $50000 To U Of Toronto For Ethiopic Studies
THE WEEKND has donated $50,000 to the University of Toronto to create an Ethiopian studies program. That’s where his parents are from.
Someone from the school said, quote, “He grew up in Toronto as an Ethiopian-Canadian, and now he’s giving back to the community . . . his donation helps us preserve our culture and share it with everyone else.”
The $50,000 will specifically contribute to a course on Ge’ez, “an ancient Ethiopian script and language also known as Ethiopic.” It’ll launch within the next year.
