The Willow Wheeler Mission Trip of February 2018 to Ethiopia

40 members of the Willow Wheelers, including 12 students, travelled to Ethiopia last February. After visiting projects in Arba Minch, we made the long journey to Borana by bus. In Doshke, where the Spiritans support community-based agriculture, education, health and water projects, Mammo Beriso, Director of the SCORE outreach programme, stressed the importance of promoting self-sufficiency and sustainability. We saw much evidence of the community’s active participation in development.
