PfC wants to contribute to young girls and women in Ethiopia to be given the opportunity to education, life skills training and to be included in the formal working life.

Thanks to financial support from Erna and Knut Eng’s Children Foundation, PfC has worked together with our partner, Siiqqee Women’s Development Association, to build a new girls’ center in Sebeta.

February 17th, the building could finally be opened in a grand ceremony!

Ambassador Merete Lundemo from the Norwegian embassy in Addis Ababa gave a speech and formally opened the center together with the mayor of Sebeta and senior adviser in the Ministry of Women and Social Affairs. A speech was also given by Birikit Terefe on behalf of PfC.

Among other guests at the opening were the leader of the government (Prosperity) party, the leader of Oromia Women, Children and Social Affairs, Deputy Commissioner of the Tourism Commission of Oromia and various community leaders and enthusiasts.
