The HFC country team have just moved into a beautiful new office, just down the road from our old compound. The office is located in an area called Shiromeda, in the foothills of the city. This area is where the majority of our beneficiaries live, so we are located well within the community we support.
The office is a stone double story house on a large block of land, with a green garden with flowers and a number of tall leafy trees. The garden is truly beautiful, a large lawn area, with flowers and high walls which keep the area private and quiet. Children can come and sit here to talk and read after school.
The site is much more spacious than our previous office, with a separate row of rooms behind the main building, to be used for registration, counselling rooms and classrooms. There is a large room for creativity therapy including dancing and art classes. Inside the building is a large room for the library and youth centre activities, and upstairs the main staff body is now enjoying a spacious and light open plan office.
The move to this new site is important in ‘professionalising’ our image as an organisation in Ethiopia, and we are able to now proudly invite donors and partners to our office.

We welcome all visitors to our new office!
