Hello to All,
For fun I would like to give you some greetings in Amharic:
ሰላም። (sälam) [peace] (informal)
ታዲያስ። (tadyass) [how is it?] (informal)
ጤና ይስጥልኝ። (ṭenaisṭəlləň) [may he (God) give you health on my behalf] (formal)
From here in Addis Ababa we bring you greetings again from the Ethiopian Reaching Beyond Words NGO. We always like to share with you the work we are doing at the NGO.
The month of March we have accomplished the following things: as we usually do, we have meetings with our orphan children and their families. The tutorial classes are continuing every Saturday morning, and we also have support training for the children’s families.
The ongoing work is continuing very well. We purchased new t-shirts and distributed them to all our children. We were given a donation so we could buy the t-shirts for all 75 children. The children were quite excited to get these new clothes. The estimated cost in Ethiopian Birr is 7500 ($ 328).
The widows and single mothers are continuing their training with Sister Lemlem.
All our children’s families are continuing to learn how to use and save money to their savings account.
We can not thank you enough for all your love and support that you show to us.
May God bless you,
Brother Jemal and the Ethiopian NGO Staff
