‘’Come and See’’ has two directions:
1) Academic and life coaching project
2) Agricultural education
The number of children attending the ‘’Come and See’’ program varies from day to day, with an average of 20 to 40 children a day. The number of children who stay in the ‘’Come and See’’ and live in the Center averages at about 15 to 20.
In addition to food and shelter, adequate education using different methodologies that are best suited to the individual needs of the child is provided. Among life skills taught and modeled at the Center are personal hygiene, good manners and housekeeping.

‘’Come and See’’ offers children basic education so that they are well equipped to continue their studies in the Institutional care program if they want to. Most of them come from different tribes so they don’t use Amharic alphabet, which is why they learn the Amharic language in the program. An introduction to English language and mathematics is also provided.
Children from the street have breakfast and lunch available to them, while those who sleep in the Center also have supper.
Constant support through medical care, psychological care and the presence of a social worker or volunteer is provided to all children. Constant presence helps them ask for help and prevents potential bad behavior.
countries have failed to meet the requirements for a successful
agricultural revolution, and productivity in African agriculture lags far behind the rest of the world. This has recently
led to renewed debate within the international development
community concerning the role of agriculture, particularly
small farms, in African development.
In our center we are giving our contribution for the development of our country by teaching our children the importance of agricultural work. By teaching new generations to grow crops and farm animals, we are also teaching them sustainability. This gives them a better opportunity to start a small farm in the future and help their families to live better.
Our goal is to establish an agricultural section for a bigger number of students with qualified teachers (at the moment there is only one teacher in this sector)
