Many community members do not have the skills or opportunities to secure a bright future for their families.
In a community where opportunities for skills training and employment are scarce, Fr Habte and the Church are coming alongside their community to make a change. Through the expansion of the current Deberety Farm to include a goat rearing centre, their vision continues beyond providing nutritious milk to families in need to include agricultural skills training and employment – opportunities that will allow families to provide for themselves.
Learn more about the community, the Church and Fr Habte’s continued vision for the Goat Rearing Centre in the video below.
Sadly, the youth (15-24) unemployment rate is approx. 27% with young women twice as likely to be unemployed as young men.
Fr Habte sees firsthand the challenges his community faces and is compelled to act, doing his best to provide them with life-changing opportunities.
Your partnership this World Mission Month can help build brighter futures for families in Ethiopia and around the world.
Establishing the Goat Rearing Centre means that families can access agricultural training and/or opportunities for employment, allowing them to financially support themselves and their families.
By partnering with this program, you are being a witness of Jesus Christ, as He has called us to be in Acts 1:8, and making a life-changing difference for families in need. As Fr Habte says,
“A person who understands the idea that God is love, a believer who cares about his fellow man, grieves, and makes every sacrifice possible.”
Will you support Fr Habte and the community’s vision and help build brighter futures for families in Emdibir and around the world?
