In October the NDCC had a number of visitors. Steph and Rod Howarth flew out to Bahir Dar to meet up with and their son Ali and his wife Haneen who were travelling through Ethiopia on Defender Dora. During the visit they built a new table in the garden for students to study a, bought new books for the library and set up English language software enabling students to learn English on the Centre laptops.
The students really enjoyed their visit and are very grateful for all they didi to help them. Thank you!

This year half of the funds raised will go to the DEC East Africa Crisis Appeal. As East Africa experiences the worst drought and famine this century support is desperately needed in the region. DEC member charities are already delivering life-saving assistance in all affected countries, however more help is needed to reduce the scale and severity of the crisis.
Law graduate and TEFL teacher Tom Hagyard is currently spending time at the Centre before starting his lawyer training contract in September. As well as teaching English, helping around the Centre and enjoying spending time with the students.
