Sheka Forest

Only less than 3% of Ethiopia is covered with high forest! A greater portion of this forested area is found in the south west part of the country. This is where Sheka Forest is located, and the story in the video below is about how the Shekacho people, assisted by a local NGO, are attempting to reclaim and rejuvinate the forest.

This Music is Good for You - IX

A great song, a beautiful video, a superb delivery. This is Eyerusalem (Jerri) Negiya, a rising star in the Ethiopian Christian music scene. Simply the best Ethiopian song of the past few years!
