Mekelle Youth Centre

Reference number


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.

Please pray:

  • 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.
