The second project we visited was KYHRDO in Hotela town, a 1 hour drive from Addis Abba in Oromiyya region . We arrived in a courtyard, greeted by the mayor and grandmothers. While we waited for a busload of Grandmothers from the region the children sang, one young girl read to us about the importance of education and a young boy told us jokes. Once the grandmothers arrived, they danced, sang, clapped and ululated inviting us to dance with them .

Our choice is to honour the grandmothers, enfold the orphans in our arms, and support them to make all of their lives whole again.
