After months of positive discussions, a decision on receiving land from the Government for our ‘Home for Tomorrow’ was imminent.

Today we got the decision… it was a no. Devastating news! Apparently there is a new law that prioritises land for other purposes.

After the initial disappointment we bounced back. Ato Mankir, the chairman of our General Assembly, was shocked; he knew nothing of such a new law. He will follow up with his contacts in government.

We then went to see the Mayor of Gonder. He was outraged. “This is a project for the community” he cried. He is now going to write a letter to the government on our behalf.

This was a bit of a setback but to see the way in which our supporters have rallied to our cause is a really positive outcome.

One way or the other we will make this home happen.
