Ethiopia is in a period of rapid development. The economy is improving and a middle class is developing. There is much in the future that looks bright and hopeful. However, there are still many poor and vulnerable people in need of assistance. Gebeyhu is actively involved in projects that directly benefit some of the most vulnerable.

School for Humanity - Shashamene

Gebeyhu's involvement in this community-based school project grew out of his time with Habitat for Humanity in Shashamene. Gebeyhu, along with local community members, recognized that while better housing was improving the well-being of families, children were still not attending school. Although government schools are free, families must provide school uniforms and supplies, an insurmountable burden for some. Further, children who can earn a living may encouraged to contribute to the family income rather than attend school. The School for Humanity Association grew out of this concern and works to promote education for disadvantaged groups as well as sustainable gender equity.
