Ethiopia - IVD events

The Addis Ababa Youth Association plans a half day workshop on the issue of volunteerism to raise awareness and alert the community to engage themselves in volunteerism activity in their own communities. At the same time it will have an exhibition which displays volunteerism activities in environmental protection, cleaning, supplementary education and the like. Participants will be concerned citizens of the city.

Addis Ababa Youth Association has experience of 10 years and it has been awarded by the government of Ethiopia for its voluntary activity. The main voluntary activity which the association is involved in is the Africa Athletics Champions and summer youth social and developmental voluntary campaign which is performed during the summer season.
