End of Year Updates

December 16, 2022

Can you believe it? It’s the last update of the year.

We have a lot to share with you:

The Sodo children are still able to swim at the center on the weekends and they are loving it.

Visitors from the Wolaita Sodo University Medical department came to the B Loved

Ethiopia Center to share their love and spend time with our children. Ten medical

Students came to the center and shared their life experience to the kids. They enjoyed the visitors and getting to learn more about them.

The kids were given life skill training at the center this past month. The training was focused on “Self-Image and Rights and Duties”. All the kids were gathered for the training but twenty of the older kids attended a whole day training. The training included small presentations, group discussions, games, refreshments, question and answering, role play, and learning Biblical prayer. The training facilitators were the project director and the social workers. It was overall very successful.

Some clothing items were purchased for some of the older kids. Catch the pictures below!

B Loved hired two new group home moms (Birtukan and Asnakech); one for Addis girl’s home and the other for Sodo. Welcoming and orientation was given to her before they started the job. They shadowed the other moms very closely to be familiarized with the group home culture.

The milking machine was purchased from Addis Ababa. Staff was trained on how to use it and it is already so helpful!

B Loved Ethiopia is on the way to implement a dairy farm at our Bishoftu Center and for that a mini shelter is being built. 95% of the task is completed and currently they are doing the entrances and floor leveling work . After that is finished, we will bring 4 cows and 3 calves from Sodo and will continue step by step.

We are working to admit five more children and are in the selection process. Prayers on this matter would be appreciated.

We hope that you all have a wonderful and safe rest of the year!
