The Rastafari Idren started migrating to Ethiopia 38 years ago, when Haile Selassie, whom they consider to be God incarnate, gave them 500 hectares of land on which to settle. Since the first 12 Jamaican settlers in 1963, the community has grown to over 200 families. And there is Room for more. Papa Rocky, a 74 year old Rastafarian elder from Jamaica believes western countries should help repatriate all those who might wish to return to their native land, but do not have the means to do so. You can support all you want for an entire year at only a cost of 80.00 per student for books, materials and meals! http://www.shashamane.org/
