The Abayater Community – Paving the Way for Change

Back to Ethiopia



Abayater is a remote village in the Rasa Goba region. The people are very poor.

Desperate for a way to help their children, and having no other means, some of the community rented out their own land to raise money to enable them to build classrooms, an office and long-drop toilets. This made them eligible to apply for the Compassion International child sponsorship programme.

CPA partnered with the local church, providing top up funds to help them achieve their target.

We are pleased to report that Compassion International has launched the promised programme for 250 children in Abayater.

This is really encouraging for the local church and is already having a positive effect on the wider community.
