REAL's Burayu Katta Girls 2006

Several members of Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd have gone to Ethiopia and met the girls they are sponsoring at Burayu Kata.

About 14 kilometers west of Addis is Burayu Kata. While it is a suburb of the capital, there are many realities that place it more in the rural areas than urban. The school was founded by Ammanuel and his wife, Elfinish.

Fifteen of the 120 students at the school were supported by REAL. Through REAL, they received tuition payment, clothing allowance, material and books fees, as well as some money for savings.
