On Tuesday we drove outside of Addis Ababa through “challenging” traffic – we were constantly being cut off by trucks, cars, bicycles and even people – to a more rural area to visit schools that are benefiting from British foreign aid. Driving through this area you see people herding goats beside the road, donkeys loaded up parcels, we even encountered a small herd of cattle in the road at one point.
My parents are educators so I was particularly interested to see these schools. They’re serving large numbers of students (at the secondary school there are 4,000 students) and at the primary school they break the day into 2 parts to accommodate morning and afternoon students.
Here’s a clip about what I saw.
