Addis Abeba, Ethiopia
A project for 30 homeless men and 16 homeless mothers with little children
Sponsored by the Brothers of Oostakker
30 homeless men between 20 and 35 years old, who have been living in the streets for at least 5 years, get full board and pension during 10 months. Meanwhile they are being educated and trained in workshops. They are working from 9 am till 21pm. They produce creative jewellery and are instructed in tailoring. It is hard to believe how well they are able to tackle life to the fullest after their residence in the project. They provide new orders for the new residents! Magnificent!
Moreover 15 homeless mothers and their children get full board and pension during 1 year to learn embroidering and weaving.
Daily we also offer lunch to 125 old homeless men and women.
