Girls' Boarding Care Center – Ethiopia The Amanuel Girls’ Boarding Care Center serves children whose families have been affected by the HIV/AIDS crisis. P2P established the Care Center in 2004. We serve around 50 orphan girls who are attending secondary school at traditional public schools, but face financial restrictions. Some (around 15) live full-time at the Care Center and receive comprehensive support services. Other students live at home, but receive food, clothes, educational materials, recreational programming, counseling, and other services from the Care Center. Many former students of the Care Center have gone on to higher education, including in the medical field. Their individual successes will also continue to power Ethiopia’s growth and development. Empowering Deaf Youth in Ethiopia: Unleashing the Untapped Potential The deaf community in Ethiopia deserves to live in the shadows no more, which is why we at People to People are striving to work side-by-side with local change-makers at the forefront of deaf education, empowerment, and service delivery in the country in helping to reach some of society’s most silenced members. Orphan Vocational Program (2007-2010) With the support of a grant from the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, in 2007, P2P established a youth center in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The center was equipped with internet and a research library that provided relevant information on HIV/AIDS, reproductive health and family planning services with the aim to slow down the rate of population growth and HIV incidence among youths between the ages of 15 and 30. (2005) Through a partnership with The Pfizer Foundation, P2P supplied the Ministry of Health in Ethiopia with the drug Fluconazol (also known as Diflucan) to be used in the treatment of AIDS patients with systemic fungal infections. (2002) P2P was awarded a grant from The Pfizer Foundation that was used to educate high school students in three regions of Ethiopia (Oromia, Amhara, and Tigray) about HIV prevention and transmission through behavioral changes. A total of 170 students, school administrators and health care workers have been educated on HIV/AIDS prevention.
