Afar Region of Northeastern Ethiopia and the capital – Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
The nomadic peoples of the Afar region of northeastern Ethiopia struggle to maintain their lifestyle, particularly in times of severe drought. Yeteem provides the people with training, supplies and support necessary to achieve food security and self-sufficency. Yeteem also empowers women to have control over the own lives by providing training in sewing and embroidery, and helps impoverished children to grow into self-sufficient citizens.
