We were fortunate to discover Negestie, the owner/director of Trinity, located within the very community Adera serves. […]

Coffee, Community, and Goats!

Coffee knows no international boundaries. It is consumed all over the world but in Ethiopia it is far more than a favorite beverage of choice. It is at the epicenter of the social culture.

My Eye is upon you
