Please note CRED are currently not running any team trips for schools to Ethiopia
In Addis Ababa, the capital city of Ethiopia, our partners AHISDO and CBISDO deliver a range of vital community services through community participation, including health care, youth services, libraries, elderly services, and special needs provision. These two independent organisations were birthed out of IHA-UDP, a previous CRED partner.
The Ethiopia CRED Team Trip is an opportunity to travel to Ethiopia and deliver a five day activity week providing fun, creative and educational lessons and activities in a kindergarten and an after school club for local children and young people.
The week itself is of significant benefit to those involved, informed as it is by child development theory, good teaching practice, and a spirit of fun and play. Local staff appreciate the input and new ideas, as well as the resources that are left behind, and any fundraising is given straight to the host project. For our team members, going overseas to volunteer brings about many experiences including different cultures, team work, social justice and understanding poverty.
Trips to Ethiopia are usually during October, to fit in with the local dry season – although a Team Trip to our second Ethiopian partner could take place in the Summer. Specific dates will be clarified upon application.
