Mark & Amy Robinson’s Ethiopia Visit

By | Ethiopian Culture

Written by Mark and Amy (Link Ethiopia sponsors and parents to Ben, a volunteer with Link Ethiopia). Our trip to Northern Ethiopia can only be described as a major assault on the senses – in a good way. From the spectacular beauty of the Simien Mountains, to the architectural wonder of the Lalibela churches, this part of Africa is surely the continent’s best kept secret. © Amy Robinson, 2016 We travelled to Ethiopia because our son, Ben, was near completion…

Adventures with a Donkey in Ethiopia

By | Fundraising

Written by Rory It’s 2pm in the heat of the Gondar afternoon and I’m following the happiest donkey in Ethiopia.

A Gondar university graduate creates outdoor reading space

By | Ethiopian News

by Hannah Dillon What strikes Ethiopians most when they visit London? The answer is not what you might expect. In fact, many are surprised to see that everyone is reading. On the tube, in the park, in cafés… as Londoners we take this fact for granted. Many educated Ethiopians are concerned about the lack of reading culture in the country. However, there are only few who are actively doing something about it. On Friday, we had the privilege of meeting Ephrem, a…
