Tixta, 9, practices reading with her Uncle Tadu in Angolela, Ethiopia.
It’s very important to Tadu Eshetu and others in Angolela that the children in their community develop literacy skills. Tadu is the father of five children, three of whom participate in World Vision Ethiopia’s literacy programs. He is not only a busy father and farmer, he is also the chairperson for his local kebele (a “kebele” is the smallest administrative unit in Ethiopia), a respected community leader, and a partner with World Vision.
Tadu has taken the lead in setting up 12 reading camps for children, he supports livelihoods training that gives people options for earning a living, and savings groups so they can capitalize businesses. He acts as a conduit between World Vision and his kebele in other aspects of community life — health, education, water, and sanitation.
We thank God for Tadu and so many other partners who work with us to give children life in all its fullness.
