The House the Village Built

Wayzay was delighted with her new, weather-proof house built by the Mossy Foot Project in cooperation with workers from the church community.  A big smile illuminated her face as she posed inside her home with Pastor Zewdie the Mossy Foot Project Pastor.  As a house warming present, Wayzay was given artificial flowers, a rooster and two hens.  Also, her neighbors plowed the field behind her house and planted it with false banana plants.

"It Takes a Village"

Wayzay is an impoverished, elderly widow whose granddaughter lived with her in a hut that was about to fall down and did not protect them from the rain.  The Mossy Foot Project, with a Community of help from the local church decided to join efforts in building a new house for Wayzay.
In a few days we will see the results of their labor.
