SCOPE partners with medical and faith communities to improve health in Ethiopia through outreach, education, and training.


SCOPE fellows Emily Robinson and Kate Pfizenmaier met with Archbishop Abune Elsa of the North Gondar Diocese to discuss SCOPE’s progress and the fellows’ current projects.  Abune Elsa was very pleased to meet our current fellows and excited to hear about SCOPE’s continuation of the Soul Fathers project. They discussed antenatal care and traditional home delivery as well as the benefits of delivering in a health center. Abune Elsa also learned about the SCOPE Gondar Steering Committee which includes representatives from the North Gondar Diocese, Kesis Dawit and Ato Kelemorak.
