Hana Ayalew

Area Director

Hana is an incredible blessing to the Young Life Ethiopia team. Hana has a heart for kids with special needs and is currently working to bring Jesus to kids with a variety of mental and physical disabilities. She is generous, bubbly and full of joy – you can always find Hana with a smile on her face. Hana grew up in a Christian family and feels that she has had the blessing to walk with Jesus her whole life.

When she was in high school, Hana met Rahel, a local area director for Young Life who invited her to club. She was a volunteer leader until 2016; she is now bringing her unique gifts and her passion for kids to reach a very special part of God’s Kingdom in Ethiopia.

As she is now Associate Staff for Young Life Capernaum in Addis Ababa, she leads ministry at a deaf school as well as a rehabilitation center around the Addis Abba area. She also does Campaigners with a deaf soccer team and she is hoping to start Capernaum for Autistic and blind kids soon.
