These are the types of challenges that Great Hope Ministry faces and are hoping to address as their programs develop. Presently they are partnering with the Ethiopia Guest Home which is providing an income generation project for some of the Korah women at the children’s shelter. There are approximately 50 women in the program and on a daily basis around 30 of these women come to the shelter to form clay beads, which are later dried, glazed and designed into beautiful necklaces.
What began as an outcast leper community eighty years ago has now grown into Korah, an urban slum with an estimated 130 000 people situated near the city garbage dump in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The community is consumed with poverty, where families are broken apart through desperation, illness, and death. OUR MISSION STATEMENT: "Loosening the yoke of extreme poverty in Korah, Ethiopia and bringing hope to those who live there." Isaiah 58:6-7 KEEPING FAMILIES HEALTHY & TOGETHER!
