The OVC project is an initiative of the Adigrat Diocesan Catholic Secretariat (ADCS) of the Ethiopian Catholic Eparchy of Adigrat. The project supports young people with micro-scholarships for obtaining a university entrance qualification and at least one bachelor's degree in their own country. It is based in Adigrat, Tigray region, Ethiopia. One of the sponsored students was the AIDS orphan Rahel Hailay, who completed the study of biology and zoology at the universities in Axum and Mek'ele from 2009 to 2014. It is largely funded by donations collected by the Student Initiative Rahel in Germany.
