In Ethiopia, famine and illness have orphaned an estimated 5 million children. Malnutrition caused by limited food variety is a major threat to Ethiopian lives. Nearly all are subsistence farmers and few have the opportunity to pursue goals beyond immediate survival. The Kembata-Temboro region, within Ethiopia is one of the most famished areas in the world. Here, years of civil war and drought have robbed people of their livelihoods.
