THE TESFA PROJECT
TESFA Center & TESFA Guest House
Petros Network designed The TESFA Project as a solution to reach the poorest poor, people living with less than $1.25 US per day. In Ethiopia we identified widowed women with children as women most at risk — pushed to the very margins of society, trapped in extreme poverty, and left vulnerable to abuse and exploitation. The plight of widow’s children is alarming as well as they are typically living with impoverished mindsets, forced into daily labor, unable to go to school, scorned by society, and left without hope and a future. As our ministry grew we realized the need for a vocational training center as well as a place specifically designated for the population we desired to serve. Understanding that need, we launched the TESFA Center and the TESFA House, located in Gojo, Ethiopia as a vocational training center and sustainability project.
