New Orphanage Comes to Addis

March 9 , 2019


A new orphanage, called Qusquam, is being set up in Addis Abeba at a cost of 20 million Br. Zinash Tayachew, wife of Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed (PhD), laid the cornerstone for the building on March 8, 2019. The cost of construction will be covered by her office and Afro-Tsion Construction, which has experience working on large construction projects including the Oromo Cultural Center. The announcement for the construction of the new centre, which will be completed in half a year, will be a substitute for Zewditu Meshesha Children’s & Family Charity & Development Association, which was damaged by a fire three months ago. The new building will have classrooms, a library, a dining hall, training centres and a playground.
