The 5F's agriculture project is located in the Awi region of Northern Ethiopia. Central to the Awi people is the Awi language, agriculture works, and the Orthodox religion.

Over decades of living life together and bringing about improved agriculture practices, trusting relationships between SIM and the Awi people have been built.

This video story gives an insight to the Awi people and SIM workers living in the area.
