We'd like to introduce you to some of the people in Nekemte who make it possible for us to carry out our projects.
Our community link is now mainly with Nekemte, a large town in the district of Wellega in western Ethiopia, about 220 miles west of the capital Addis Ababa.
We include the rural areas around Nekemte and a large village 60 miles away called Hareto where we began our link.
