Chara of Ethiopia

Introduction / History
The Chara or as also known the Tsara are part of the Gimira cluster which includes the Dizi, the Nao, the Benesho, the She. The Chara, with other people groups in the Gimira cluster, inhabit the extreme southern and southwestern reaches of the densely forested Kaffa highlands of southwestern Ethiopia. They are more inaccessible compared to the Nao as they live in the most southerly extension of the Nao highlands. They together with the Nao were the indigenous inhabitants of the land. They speak Chara language, an Omotic language which has 54% lexical similarity with Wolaita. The Chara subsist by farming. They also were numerous until they were decimated through war and the frequent slave raids. They are predominantly adherents to ethnic religion. Along with their ethnic religion the Chara practice a syncretized form of the Orthodox form of Christianity.

Prayer Points
* Ask the Lord to raise up a people who pray for this unique people.
* Ask the Lord to strengthen the existing, indigenous church to reach its people.
* Pray for gospel resources to be available in their language.
