The house has 4 bedrooms, a living room and a common bathroom, as well as an independent kitchen where cheeses are made in order to earn income to help
There is also a 200m 2 orchard and a non-potable water well; all this allows them to grow some food to feed themselves.
In 2018, 4 women and 6 children were welcomed at high risk of exclusion. The budget was 150,800 ETB (4,700€ per year, about 390€ per month). It includes food, clothing, medical assistance, schooling, electricity, water, firewood and the salary of the person in charge.
In 2019, the center increased the number of shelters to 5 women and 10 children between the ages of 3 and 14. The budget was 188000ETB (5,900€ per year). The sale of cheeses has begun to be a reality and has managed to reduce the budget from 470€/ person per year to 395€.

This year 6,000€ has been donated to keep the center running
