Launhardt (2004), Evangelicals in Addis Ababa, p. 154 (s.v. Kale Heywet Church):
In 1948 the Christian Training Institute was opened in the Nefas Silk area on the Debre Zeit road to train evangelists. This functioned until around 1960 when it became an elementary school for girls, called Girls’ Christian Academy. In 1968 it became a high school for girls [no name mentioned]. The Grace Kale Heywet Church grew out of this ministry.
