Community Contribution

Equally important as his musical impact are his philanthropic contributions. A devout Christian, he has used his success to donate hundreds of thousands of Birr (Ethiopian Currency) to various non-profit organizations such as Abebech Gobena (a charity for homeless youth) and theEthiopian National Society for the Disabled, an organization dedicated to the rehabilitation of handicapped people in Ethiopia. Knowing that the progress of Ethiopia lays in the hands of the youth, Teddy visits schools along his touring routes and spends time with kids following his concerts.
