Youth apostolate is a major priority of the Archdiocese of Addis Ababa in Ethiopia. The challenges facing young people in Ethiopia are immense: many face a future of poverty and unemployment and can only dream of fleeing the countryside for the capital, or even leaving the country altogether for Europe. Most do not realize beforehand the dangers, both physical and spiritual, that can result from such a decision.
At the same time, they too are bombarded by all the influences of the modern world, with its many false values, since today, modern media is able to penetrate into even the remotest villages. As a result, many young people lose their way and with it a healthy perspective on life and family.
