Mission 2021

The Salesian Mission of Adwa, called Kidane Mehret, was created at the end of 1994.

When Sister Laura Girotto was called to fund the Mission in Ethiopia, she looked for help in Italy and she found an important support in Cento (near Ferrara), where Amici di Adwa Association was created to raise funds.

Despite starting from nothing, the mission now offers the people KG, primary, middle, high, and technical school, advancement of women, social and medical services, food and milk; a true miracle, the result of the generosity of thousands of people.

Why Adwa?

The Daughters of Mary Help of Christians were called in by the city elders, at the end of a civil war, with the goal of educating and professionally training the youth.

The Salesian Mission today

It is a hope that burns bright in the lives of the poor, the only stable reference centre for thousands of people who turn to Kidane Mehret in times of emergency, for advice, for help, truly for anything they might need.

An incredible story of solidarity and courage born in Turin.
