Restorative Justice Learning Tour: Ethiopia
Come learn about restorative justice work through visiting MCC’s work and partners in Ethiopia. The Learning Tour will also focus on an introduction to development projects in Ethiopia and to the Ethiopian culture and community.
Vengence (revenge) killings have been part of the culture of the Mehal Meda community and region (170 miles northeast of Addis Ababa) for centuries. Combined with early childhood marriage, abduction, female genital mutilation, and extravagant ritual feasts, these harmful traditional practices have affected the health and livelihood of all community members. Finding responses to address the revenge killings began with MCC partnership in 2006 as part of a restorative justice project.
