Exeter-Ethiopia Link’s key Ethiopian partner since its inception in 1987 has been the ‘Development & Social Service Commission’ (DASSC) of the Mekane Yesus Church (EECMY) – Central Synod. DASSC is a registered Ethiopia NGO engaged in development work which operates separately from the Mekane Yesus church organisation. The church had its roots in the Swedish Mission to Ethiopia which was active in development work in Wellega establishing Nekemte Hospital in 1932 and running it until the government take-over in 1975. DASSC now runs the Nekemte Eye Clinic, Nekemte School for the Deaf and many other development projects in and around Nekemte.

Mobirise gives you the freedom to develop as many websites as you like given the fact that it is a desktop app.
Publish your website to a local drive, FTP or host on Amazon S3, Google Cloud, Github Pages. Don't be a hostage to just one platform or service provider.
Just drop the blocks into the page, edit content inline and publish - no technical skills required.
We'd like to introduce you to some of the people in Nekemte who make it possible for us to carry out our projects.
