Playing outside, 2016

Sometimes children just want to be children. To play. To enjoy themselves. To be with their friends. That’s not always easy in Ethiopia, where school competes with household chores or work in the fields for much of their time. There are also too few youth facilities and too many bars in town.

Bruh Tesfa is therefore a safe, welcoming place where the young people of the area can come to play sport, watch television, relax in the shade of our trees and flowers, or become involved in one of our many clubs.

These include sports teams in basketball, football and volleyball (all hugely popular in Ethiopia), playing regular fixtures against local opposition; an art club, music club, dance club and drama club; as well as a dedicated club for our youngest children. As you can see, there is something for everyone!
