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.
Meketa's Training and Employment projects teach skills like sewing which allow members of the community to support their families with dignity.
THE PROJECTS THAT HELP OUR COMMUNITY
Supporting children's education with classes, homework help and extra-curricular activities.
