In less than a week, I will be setting off to Ethiopia with six CODE supporters who share in our belief that when a person can read and write they can learn to do anything.
I’ll be honoured to show them first hand what Canadian funds can accomplish through partnership with CODE Ethiopia, and a multitude of dedicated Ethiopian teachers, volunteers and eager students.
Our visit will take us from the thriving capital Addis Ababa to rural areas of the north. We’ll visit reading rooms, speak to teachers, authors of children’s books and community leaders.
I hope you will enjoy our blog postings.
