There are still over 800 children sleeping on the streets of Gondar every night, some as young as 6 years old. We need regular donations totalling €195 per week to give 17 of the most vulnerable children a home.

Running for Yenege Tesfa

We want to say thank you and congratulations to Timothy Smekens who represented Yenege Tesfa in the Brussels Marathon on October 7th.

Mobile School arrives in Gondar

The Belgian organization Mobile School (http://www.mobileschool.org/en) arrived in Ethiopia for the first time and is partnering with Yenege Tesfa. Trainers from Belgium came in Gondar to train two new teachers (street educators) to use the mobile school. Mobile School trainers and teachers happy that the school finally arrived in Ethiopia!  The mobile school is a cart on wheels, with extendable blackboards and colorful panels that are used to teach street children, meeting them wherever they are. The school is aimed to raise the self-esteem of street children and to provide them schooling since they have little access to education. The school will be taken out each week to three locations in Gondar and the exciting educational work has officially...

Yenege Tesfa established a new home for boys!

After many efforts the fourth Yenege Tesfa home opened, the second home for boys.

A father and mother moved into the home, as did an older brother, and the young boys have begun their new life full of opportunities.  The happy boys on the way to their new home for the first...
