Global Youth Expedition – Alemgena

We spent several days with the students at the Education Support Center in Alemgena, singing songs, playing soccer, and learning all sorts of new phrases in Amharic!

The student volunteers gave their presentations on having sportsmanship, being environmentally friendly, and we also had a fun class to practice English by reading and acting out stories.

The program manager and the students had planned a community service project for all of us to do – we cleaned out the water drainage system down a main road near the education center – right in front of Teddy’s new shop! It rained nearly the whole time, but that couldn’t stop us.

At the end of our time together, we had a wonderful dance party!
