The One Heart Therapeutic Center
Presently Roots for the Youths supports the One Heart Therapeutic Centre (formerly known as The One Love Day Service) in Bahir Dar, Ethiopia. This therapeutic day care service is run by Barbara Okugbeni from the UK. Barbara and her Ethiopian team accommodate children with special needs from poor families. The service is free and relies completely on donations.
The One Heart Therapeutic Centre was established five years ago and continues to grow with great demand. Roots for the Youths has visited the daycare centre two times. We saw firsthand how important the work is that Barbara and her team do for the community.
