Thanks to the kind donation from the Ana Leaf Foundation the NDCC has been able to buy a Bajaj – a small taxi that is widely used in Ethiopia. Also the donation has paid for three students – Abera, Wobalem and Worku – to complete their Bajaj training and they have now each passed their driving test.
These three students will now drive the Bajaj as a taxi in Bahir Dar and the profits will be shared between them and the NDCC. This income generation scheme is the first step towards a sustainable Centre. Our vision is to create a number of income generation schemes which not only provide employment for students who have graduated from school or college but also provide a income for the NDCC generated locally.
