Week one was orientation and full of cultural events, museum visits and a trip to Bishoftu (formerly Debre Zeiyt) to visit Women’s Self Help Groups, a training center that serves as an ecological farm, and the Kuriftu resort
Orientation week consisted of cultural visits including one to the palace of Menelik II
and tons of tasty injera
A visit to a women’s self-help group in Debre Zeyit was definitely one of the highlights of the week. The cutting of the bread was a gesture of welcome and appreciation by the strong and empowered women who shared their experiences with us.
