Thousands of Jewish people live in extreme poverty in Gondar, Ethiopia as they  wait for immigration to Israel. 


Whether they remain there as an independent community or move to Israel in the future, Meketa's goal is to give them skills so they can create a better economic and social future.


Meketa helps this community  to help themselves.

This young  woman  learned to sew, purchased a sewing machine and set up a small business through Meketa's Training and Employment and Microloan projects. 


 She can now support her three young daughters.

We support many  people pursuing other business ventures. 


The After School Club
Ethiopia has one of the lowest literacy rates in the world. Our club supports children's education.
Applicants compile a business plan and they receive a loan based upon its merit. Meketa assists with start-up and provides ongoing support.
Vocational Training
Meketa helps school leavers and job seekers by giving them training in a skill that can lead to employment.
Traditional Crafts
Local craftsmen and craftswomen make Tallitot and Kippot which are for sale in our shop.
Child Sponsorship
Sponsored children receive a school uniform and set of books at the start of the school year, in addition to a monthly direct payment.
Help for the Vulnerable
The elderly and those with illnesses who are unable to work also receive financial support from Meketa.
