In August and December 2017, the first four students graduated in the south of Ethiopia. Armie Ayika, who graduated in Arba Minch is now working in South Omo. Netsanet Abebe, Jemilla Seid and Elshaday Anteneh, who graduated in Mizan Aman are shown here in the photo together with Lode van Reedt of the Bilma Foundation, and Ato Adane, his Ethiopian counterpart. The graduates from Mizan Aman all work in Bench Maji.
Two of the four graduates were able to study thanks to an ‘Adopt a Midwife’ scholarship.
