To aid in the construction of a high school in Ahsea we have formed a non-profit 501c organization called
Peace International Inc.

1The President of our group is Father Mussie Berhe. Mussie was born and raised in Ahsea. While visiting his homeland he felt the communities great need for a High School and made a commitment to help.

Mussie is a Priest of The Ethiopian Orthodox Church in Los Angeles, Ca.

When Mussie was a child there were not any schools in Ahsea. At about age 10 he left his family to go to theology school in a far away town.

To contace Father Mussie please email:
