Open Door Employment Program

Through the Open Door Employment Center, Adera seeks to provide sustainable employment opportunities for parents.

  • Training programs enhance both business and social skills
  • Participants are then matched with an external training program in a particular vocation
  • Once training is complete, Adera assists in creating a small business or finding employment with a local business in Addis Ababa
  • Adera continues to provide both counseling and guidance throughout the employment process to ensure ongoing success
  • Our goal is to equip parents to provide for the needs of their families

Currently we have helped 25 individuals receive training and find employment in Addis Ababa.
