Mission Statement

We, the Felege Hiywot Center, serve urban youth of Indianapolis, second generation Ethiopians in Indianapolis, and orphans in Ethiopia. We teach gardening and environmental preservation. We encourage youth to embrace the virtues of community service. We perform this mission as an expression of our Christian faith.

Description

Education by Gardening

FHC will be known, first and foremost, for its gardening program in Indianapolis. Youth will learn how to grow vegetables, tend land, sell crops, and recycle. Our gardening resource center includes fertile land and will eventually include classrooms and more gardening acreage. As we develop the land further, the garden will gain a broader multinational flavor, with sections focused on crops indigenous to countries outside of North America.

We are determined to become the primary educator of gardening skills for youth in Martindale-Brightwood. Our goal is for each youth participant to develop gardening skills, an awareness of nature, a commitment to environmental preservation, an ability to make nutritious food choices, and skill in recycling and composting. Through involvement in our programs, each youth will have the opportunity to become an active community servant, a helpful team player, and a responsible family member. It is our hope that each youth will also gain a sense of self-sufficiency through the growth and sale of crops.
