The Mekelle Youth Centre works with thousands of youth in Northern Ethiopia, providing sporting facilities and activities, computer classes, HIV/AIDs education and English classes for young people aged 8-20. The youth centre provides a neutral base to build relationship with 800-1000 young people a day as well as their families, government officials and many other community members. It fulfils a vital need in the lives of the youth and community, who are among the world’s poorest and most disadvantaged.
Thank God for the role that MYC plays in thousands of children’s lives throughout the city. As people engage in programmes in sport, English teaching, HIV/AIDS awareness and computing, pray the Lord will shine through those teaching.
Praise God for the team that work at MYC, both expat and Ethiopian, pray that the Lord will raise up more people willing to serve at MYC.
