1st construction phase completed

On January 31, 2020, we started construction work on our Charity Center in Lalibela and only 39 working days later the first construction phase is finished. 314m² of foundation and foundation walls have been completed and 34 building pillars each 3.50 meters high have been erected.


The costs so far are higher than hoped and our available funds have shrunk significantly. At over 58%, material costs are the largest share of the costs and have so far amounted to 23,000 euros, the wages paid correspond to 25% of the total costs.

Now our construction work will have a break and the plan is to continue with the ground floor in early 2021. Our engineer Gashew, site manager Temesgan and many others have confirmed to us that the largest and most cost-intensive job has been done with the foundation and we are confident that we will continue to make rapid progress from September onwards.

We now have to diligently collect donations again and hope and rely on your support. What we have already done was only possible thanks to you and only with you can we achieve our goal. Thank you for your support and help in financing our common center of charity!

Construction plan for our Charity Center

Our longtime vision. Since " Hope for Ethiopia e.V." was initiated 2014 in Lalibela  as a private project out of the idea to act for the poorest of the poor living in absolutly hard and difficult conditions-focusing on love, hope, compassion, care and shelter- we have this vision! Our idea and major purpose is to establish a Charity Center in Lalibela. Point of Contact and Hotspot for people in greatest need, giving shelter and food daily to the poorest of the poor and needies with new profil on sponsorship. Appropriate home and care for people in absolute need, in event of sickness or care and shelter. For orphans as well as for homeless people. Homespot for Clothing, Educational Services Christian Counselling, Social Welfare and Medical Support. A Center of effective Charity.

We have so many ideas and there are many aspects of an effective Charity Center coming up here and now, extensibel and expandibel even in future time. The realisation of our idea and project in Lalibela requires first of all a building ground and second buildings. It's time to embody the vision and ideas into real.
