Business Property Network supports the UK registered charity Action Ethiopia which works with an Ethiopian partner to enable rural communities to respond to the extreme challenges faced by small-scale farmers and the natural environment.
Many local people understand what is happening and know they need to help themselves if they are to avoid facing a desolate future. Zalekesh is part of a group of women who have got together and are creating change. They want to build a flour mill to grind grain to make bread. They have called themselves the Alshoni Women’s Group. You can hear their story at http://actionethiopia.org/flourmill/
