Our next journey to Ethiopia will take place November 1-15, 2017.
The Rotary Club of Northwest Austin has partnered with the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia Central Mella on The Rotary International Global Grant #1743732 and will be implementing 12 clean water projects in Ethiopia. The mission trip will focus on building goodwill, visiting the Rotary-sponsored projects, witnessing the trials and struggles of people without water, and celebrating the gift of clean water.
Travelers will meet with fellow Rotarians, share common visions, and learn about “Timret Lehiwot,” a nongovernmental organization focused on human rights, education, and saving mothers and children. Timret Lehiwot has been recognized by Rotary International including having received the Best Health Program Award District 9200, Rotary International 2009 and the Best Cooperatives Award, Rotary International, 2009. Travelers will also learn about the rich history and culture of Ethiopia while visiting some of the country’s World Heritage sites.
While this trip will be Rotary-focused, all travelers are welcome!
