The “Ginjo School,” actually John Paul II school in Jimma, Ethiopia, was one of the teaching sites for the Vincentian Lay Missionaries this year. The folks were gathered into a community because they were afflicted with leprosy and had been living in a cemetery until the Daughters of Charity intervened on their behalf and worked with them to establish a new community of justice and respect. There is now a school, a mill, a women’s craft coop, and more to come!
