Unlike its determination to place itself among middle income countries, Ethiopia remains one of the poorest countries. Although the aspiration could only be attained through a talented workforce, forward looking policies, and technology development.
WEF’s mission is to improve the everyday lives of less fortunate and disadvantaged children and their families in Ethiopia in a sustainable manner. WEF also aims to foster goodwill and hope in these families, and create and strengthen their ties with the donors that reside outside of Ethiopia.

Injera is a specific type of bread that is part and parcel to the Ethiopian culture. Injera is a necessity food item for almost all Ethiopians and is utilized in almost all-traditional cuisine. The bread is unique in appearance and texture. It is one of the most delicate food items to automate due to its characteristics that include; “bubbly eye”, circular flat geometry, very elastic, smooth back surface and a fluffy texture. These unique properties require a thorough understanding of the “overall” injera making process, i.e., fermentation of the teff flour under controlled environment, viscosity of the batter, amount of batter per injera, the spreading of the batter to obtain the right geometry and thickness, the precise temperature at which the injera is cooked, and its removal from the cooking surface using a delicate removing mechanism. Even though the injera itself looks a simple product but, to make it, it requires very sophisticated and computer controlled process. This in mind, ZELFIWU Inc. has designed and manufactured the first automated “Injera making Machine” that can produce 500 units per hour (patent pending).

Surfing through the web, I came across a video of a sanitation project in India which basically attempts to address the fact that having a flushing toilet connected to a central treatment facility is not a workable solution for most of the world.
It might be a good idea for us at YESSERA to teach our students this technology so that they can use it to create a more environmentally friendly community.
