Hanna Alayew

Area Director of Capernaum Ministry

Hanna is an incredible blessing to the Young Life Ethiopia team. Hanna 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 in Ethiopia. She is generous, bubbly and full of joy – you can always find Hanna with a smile on her face. Hanna grew up in a Christian family but didn’t really begin walking with Jesus until high school.
When she was in high school, Hanna met Rahel, a local area director for Young Life who invited her to club. Hanna got very involved and was a volunteer leader until 2016; she is now bringing her unique gifts and her passion for kids with disabilities to reach a very special part of God’s Kingdom in Ethiopia.
She is now an area director 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.
