Ethiopia Catholic Church Social and Development Commission – Spiritan Community Outreach Ethiopia (SCORE) program management team has concluded a one week program implementation review meeting. In this mid-year program management meeting besides the six-month program implementation review, the SCORE emergency response guideline revision task was commenced. Furthermore, a new development approach was launched. Accordingly, in addition to actively applying the existing Community-based Integrated Community Development (ICDP)approach, which SCORE has been following for more than 20 years, SCORE will pilot a School-based Inclusive Community Development (SICD)approach starting from 2022 in selected sites.

SCORE Borana operates in five districts of Borana zone. Namely, Yabello, Dubluq, Gomole, Dillo And Elwayyee.
This is the largest sandy valley located in the Elwayyee district, called Maansa Geerdo. It was impossible for our light vehicle to travel through this sandy valley in order to access the community of Charii Ruufay. Therefore the SCORE program team together with the district level government authorities will sit down to decide on reselecting operational sites, so as to catch up with and accelerate the project activity implementations. Elwayyee is one of the newly structured districts 25 km west of the zonal capital Yabello. Charii Ruufay is the remotest PA in the Elwayyee district in which SCORE has multiple development activities.
