Volunteers
Most of our 17 ‘summer volunteers’ are now home – they did great work in eight different projects across Ethiopia. Roles included teaching, administration, project planning and youth work. Every year our volunteers bring their own unique energy and skills to the projects and this year was no exception.  

Ambo Deaf Centre
Great news! The VLM application for €94,000 to Irish Aid/Misean Cara for the building of a Deaf Centre in Ambo has been successful. We look forward to supporting this centre in the future as it meets the specialised education and training needs of children and young people who are deaf in the Ambo region. We will report on on the building and development of this centre in the coming months.
