Tigrayans are a minority nation of 7 million people who have been under siege by the Ethiopian government since November 3, 2020. At least 500,000 civilians have been killed from massacres, drone attacks, manmade starvation, food and medicine blockades. Hundreds of thousands of Tigrayan women and girls were gang raped by Ethiopian and Eritrean soldiers. Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and countless media groups have published the atrocities. The Ethiopian government refuses to restore basic services such as phones, internet, electricity and banking. Every day of inaction equals more preventable deaths.

The center currently hosts language classes, coffee ceremonies, Camp Tigray retreats for the youth and Ashenda celebrations to celebrate young Tigrayan.
