Kucha Project (Ethiopia)

Ethiopie

Titre : Kucha Project (Ethiopia)

Pays /Région : Ethiopie
Localisation : Kucha

Date : October 2019 – November 2020

Contexte
Faced with immense physical and spiritual needs around them, Ethiopian churches are eager to respond. Hunger is a perpetual problem, with many families struggling to eat more than one meal a day 5-6 months out of the year.

Challenge
With limited theological training and no technical education, churches struggled to know where to start.

Activités
Church pastors and leaders engaged Tearfund’s church-based community transformation approach, participating in Bible studies and workshops to learn more about holistic mission and God’s mandate for them. They were trained in conservation agriculture techniques, savings groups, and natural resource management to help them ensure sustainable development of their communities.

Bénéficiaires  : Twenty local churches were mobilized and equipped to meet the needs around them, helping their communities escape physical and spiritual poverty. Farmers were also able to grow more crops to feed their families.
