We are a voluntary organisation with members mostly in Exeter and the Southwest. Our aim is to encourage and support small but sustainable development projects in Ethiopia.
Our aim is to reduce inequality and promote health, safety and wellbeing for girls living in the Nekemte area of Ethiopia.
We held our first members' meeting to discuss possible events and projects on 19 January.

We hope to be supporting more girls like Saron.
This is Saron Adugna who is aged 10 and attending grade 5 in a rural primary school. She had had her leg amputated from the knee down. Exeter Ethiopia Link's volunteer, Murti, met her in school on a monitoring visit and referred her to Nekemte Physical Rehabilitation Centre. The result is she now has a new prosthetic leg and supporting crutch and shoes. (Photo published with permission.)
