6 Events-School Education Programme / Competitions: Drama, Photograph & Art / Help for Strays / Flyer, Poster & Media Campaign
We are preparing celebrations with elementary and junior-high students in Addis Ababa. Our 5-week program aims to help raise a generation that cares, that realizes that what we do mattters, not only to ourselves, but also to everyone our lives touch. A generation that understands the conncection between both our personal and cultural choices and the fate of other people, other species and the earth, and takes responsibility for creating a better world. The program promotes empathy and compassion towards all other species and will empower children to make decisions and take action as responsible citizens, helping the planet, animals and people in an appropriate and sustanable manner. The program will culminate in a Drama Festival, leaving the students, teachers and audience inspired to become actively involved in activities that contribute to a better world. The Drama Festival will be held in Addis Ababa City Assembly, near Shiro Meda. In addition to the drama competition, there will also be a photography and art competition with all entries being available for sale to raise funds for local animal welfare organizations.
