Kaffa is in SW Ethiopia. It is in a remote area 560 km from Addis Ababa and quite undeveloped. The plan is to open a kindergarten in this area but in the meantime the team are seeking to engage with the community by providing material support for poor families. They will use this to gain confidence within the community in preparation for the provision of the kindergarten.
Shared Hope is committed to provide resource for teachers’ salaries and school materials. The concept of pre-school education is totally new in this area but will hopefully help in the general development of the community. Up until now work with children has been focused in urban areas and in particular in Addis Ababa.
