Some time of the best moments of our work is seeing the educational success of students. We believe that education is the bedrock of stable and resilient communities! In Ethiopia, students accelerate their learning by utilizing Thinking Schools international teaching methods. ENA partners with Thinking Schools to help young adults enrolled in university prepare for a successful future. We train qualified teachers to facilitate student learning through the acquisition of critical thinking and team building skills necessary to succeed at university, in careers, in families and in communities. We believe that an individuals education is an important passport to their future success. #education#ENAlifts#ethiopia#investinginfamilies#family#loveyourneoghbor#school
Yom Kippur to us is አስታስረዮ "Astatsreyo" in less fitting translation. Atonement. It is a time of reflection and healing, but more importantly a time to stand up and 'stretch out our hands to God' like Ethiopia in the bible. The God we believe in is not limited by human depictions. She is not not an old white man, with a beard, who sits on a throne, somewhere in space. He does not favor any tribe over another. They are no more masculine or feminine than a book. It is not different than the energy scientist believe in. Our 'God' is in us. He can be seen in the acts of loving kindness, felt in unconditional love, and is praised in our belief in ourselves. And our God, like us is not all good and perfect. He gets angry. She makes mistakes. In Exodus, She had to be reminded of His promise because She is ever changing, ever evolving with us. Within us. Our God is energy that connects us, binds us and holds us responsible for one another, brother, sister, Jew, buddhist, Muslim, Christian, atheist, animist, humanist, wezeta. Our God is magical like the healing scrolls of Ethiopia. She is powerful. He can work wonders. It can change at will. And they are imperfect just like us. They forgive us for our wrong doings and our mistakes, so long as we forgive ourselves. So may this day of atonement grant you healing and forgiveness. May you stretch out your hands to 'God' and embrace yourselves in one another.
My trip to Somalia has been an eye opening experience. Being back in #Mogadishu after 27 years of absence it felt surreal and I had to at times pinch myself to see that I was not dreaming and I was actually walking the streets of Mogadishu as an adult having left as a very young boy at the start of the civil war. The city has changed in many ways since the end of the brutal civil war and you can see the positive changes the city is experiencing. My expectations of Mogadishu and what I have seen with my own eyes are worlds apart. I came to a city that is slowly becoming a metropole, a city where no one cares where you came from and everyone is busy making lives for themselves. A city that is trading and living as if there is no internal issues. Mogadishu has shown me that Somalia's problem is no longer tribal based as I have not encountered one single issue to do with tribalism or even someone speaking about tribalism during my stay in Mogadishu, I have seen people from EVERY corner of Somalia living freely in Mogadishu without any fear. Mogadishu's economy is closely watched in markets in neighbouring #Kenya and #Ethiopia as the fall and rise of the currency will affect their markets. We are doing this without a strong central government, imagine what we could do if we all came together and and resolved our differences and build Somalia up as one people who share one vision and one goal. Somalia is a leading country when it comes to mobile wireless money transfer, nobody carries cash in Somalia as everyone puts their money in their mobile phones, and pay with it in shops, bars, restaurants, petrol stations and even the shoe cleaners get paid by mobile money transfer. I have come to realise the only thing that is preventing Somalia from succeeding and developing is the lack of peace and security. If everyone of us contributes to the development of our country and comes back to invest in Somalia our country could look very different in 10 years time. There is no better place then home and I truely felt that while being in Somalia. May the all mighty ALLAH (swt) grant us everlasting peace and security, which we so desperately need. Soomaaliya ha noolaato 🇸🇴🇸🇴
Today we celebrated one year of the #BBC ’s Horn of Africa Services. The political and media landscape in the region is unrecognisable from when the BBC News Amharic, Afaan Oromo and Tigrinya services went live online on this day last year. Who knew the services would be recording momentous historical events like- the resignation of a prime minister, the official end of the #Ethiopian -#Eritrean conflict, the restoration of diplomatic relations between the two countries, the liberalisation of some bits of the Ethiopian economy? Who knew that our reporters would get on the first flight from Addis Ababa to Asmara in more than 20 years? And that we’d witness thousands of families being reunited after two decades? What a year!!!! እንኳን ደስ አለዎት ማለት 👉🏽👉🏽👉🏽
Un poco de México en Etiopía.
Como un símbolo de amistad, México donó una cabeza Olmeca a Etiopía. Originalmente esta se encontraba en la Plaza México, en la capital etiope, pero hace algunos años fue reubicada y ahora se encuentra en el Museo Nacional de Etiopía.
Las relaciones de amistad México-Etiopía surgen desde 1935, cuando Etiopía era la única nación en África que nunca había sido colonizada por un país europeo. Ese año, las tropas italianas entraron en Etiopía y triunfaron exitosamente sobre el ejército etíope y procedieron a ocupar el país durante los próximos cinco años. Esto fue conocido como la Segunda Guerra Italo-Etíope. En la Liga de las Naciones (predecesor de la ONU) México fue uno de los cinco únicos estados miembros en condenar la invasión y ocupación italiana de Etiopía. Debido a esto, Etiopía mantuvo su asiento en la asamblea, y siguió siendo un miembro. Unos años después de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, las relaciones diplomáticas entre Etiopía y México se establecieron en 1949. En 1954, el Emperador Haile Selassie se convirtió en el primer Jefe de Estado africano en efectuar una visita oficial a México.
Trying to make sense of the politics of #Ethiopia for the global audience of #TRTWorld live from Ostend, Belgium. A better understanding of Africa, its politics and people is the beginning of a better relationship with the continent. The Africans who can, must help in (re)telling the African story. Just in case you are wondering why I do this....🤪🤣
Божечки, или это простуда-температура опять за своё по второму кругу, или действительно так адски холодно? 😬
Готова отогреваться в самых экстремальных условиях - сейчас бы в Даллол. Ибо по критериям труднодоступности, но главное тепла - это какое-то там чудо света - самая горячая точка на планете, среднегодовая температура бьет рекорд на Земле уже более сорока лет.
Все время нужно двигаться, ибо хоть как-то создаёшь движение воздуха вокруг себя. Остановился - привет перегрев.
Но вот сегодня, похоже, готова подвигаться и даже перегреться в таких условиях.
Dallol volcano, Northen Ethiopia - the hottest place on the planet according average year temperature 🇪🇹
