When revenge killings drop by 95% ...

Valuing human life and making an eternal difference

Now focused on addressing the devastating humanitarian crisis unfolding as a result of COVID-19 lockdowns, Heading North has overseen life-changing development in education, WASH, health, income generation, environmental conservation and leadership. 

The massive drop in revenge killings between ethnic and family groups shows a radical change in values and behaviour, inspired by peace and reconciliation programs and the establishment of six new churches across Tere in Ethiopia’s Amhara Region. 

Leadership development, peace and reconciliation training conferences and mediation have led to a reduction in violence, with revenge killings dropping from 20 per year to just one in the last 12 months.

Built on a foundation of trust

After providing emergency relief during the East African famine of 2015 - 2016, Anglican Aid formalised its ongoing relationship with Heading North as it supported the recovering community of Tere.

Five years later, we are providing assistance to Heading North as it responds to the enormous needs of people left with no way of supporting themselves as a result of COVID-19 lockdowns.  It is making a huge difference but the need continues. 

The local authorities, the community and people of all beliefs trust Heading North to help during this devastating time and that is a testament to hard work they have done, with your support.

Thank you for your generosity and for your trust as we support project partners providing Christian care to the most vulnerable. We work, on your behalf, to the Glory of God.
