The CNEWA Connection

The Catholic Church in Ethiopia not only supports people in their faith journey, but also supports and uplifts those who are marginalized — including poor and unskilled women, abandoned children and migrants who find work far from home, but return home to Ethiopia often broken.

Argaw Fantu, CNEWA’s regional director in Addis Ababa, explained recently some of the remarkable work the church is doing, and how CNEWA’s donors are supporting this work.

“The Catholic Church runs more than 18 vocational training centers for women in different parts of Ethiopia,” he wrote, “through the engagement of dedicated religious sisters, clergy, and lay missionaries and workers. CNEWA, considering the limited resources of the church and the growing needs of the people, helps support three training centers, including the Kidist Mariam Center” which is profiled in these pages.

We also provide help to St. Mary’s Technical and Vocational Training College in Wukro, located in the Eparchy of Adigrat, and to the Women Promotion Technical and Vocational Education and Training Center, run by the Ursuline Sisters in the Archeparchy of Addis Ababa.

To join CNEWA in supporting the efforts of the church in Ethiopia help all those on the margins, call: 1-800-442-6392 (United States) or 1-866-322-4441 (Canada).
