Locals are working during the two DAI-campaigns per year in Yeha for the team of Dr. Iris Gerlach. They receive a good salary, the supervising members of the DAI team form their skills in building the small but beautiful new museum, restaurating the Great Temple, excavating and preserving the Grat Be’al Gebri. Many other works are done meanwhile: there’s the new cafeteria building or the micro-credit, some team members gave to a woman at the main square in order to build up a small tea shop: the archeological project is changing the landscape at Yeha in order to help people make a better and steadier living.

What impressioned me most, was the earnest and proud way, people showed doing their new work. See yourself:
