Maychew

Aylew family

The Ayalew family are beneficiaries of the Daughters of Charity housing project in Maychew.

Maychew is a mid-sized town a couple of hours south of Mekele on the main Addis Ababa road. The Daughters of Charity are based here and have established Bethlehem Primary School and Kindergarten. There are also business support and training programmes for men and women with disabilities allowing them generate an income from sewing, weaving and shop keeping, in turn making a difference to the lives of their families. The Daughters also link with individuals in need and have provided some single-parent families with secure housing. 

Volunteers are needed with…  pre-, primary or secondary teaching qualifications to run a summer programme for students in Bethlehem school from July to August.
