SERA HELSINKI_Our Sheep and Shepherds

Our Shepherds

The wool of the carpets is from the highlands of in the northern parts Ethiopia. The climate is cool in these regions and therefore the villages have traditions using wool in their everyday life. The sheep move freely in the nature and are taken care of by the shepherds. The wool is shorn off the sheep twice a year by traditional way which doesn’t cause pain for the sheep. All the wool is mulesing-free. We are leading projects in the villages of Mahal Media, Tsehay Sena and Molale to create job opportunities for shepherds with disabilities. With the help of Finnish and Ethiopian NGOs (Non Governmental Organization) we are establishing micro businesses for the persons with disabilities in sheep herding and wool production.
