Dine For Ethiopia: Leave A Legacy
Building on the well-documented successes of the Unity Park, Sheger Riverside and Entoto Park projects, the Dine for Ethiopia initiative was officially launched by Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed earlier in the summer with the vision to develop three new world-class tourist sites in Ethiopia’s regions.
Ahead of the breaking of ground on these projects, a national legacy resource mobilisation initiative was launched to raise 3 billion Birr within two months. Now, only two weeks remain for donors to leave their legacy and to make history again!
The sites located in Gorgora in the Amhara Regional State; Wonchi in the Oromia Regional State; and Koysha in the Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples’ Regional State will solidify Ethiopia’s place as a rising star within global tourism.
Located in the Southern region of Ethiopia is blessed with lush hills, green fields and dense forests.
The area is host to abundant wildlife and characterised by a variety of climatic and topographical features. From cooler highlands to temperate plains and humid lowlands – refreshing volcanic crater lakes and rejuvenating hot springs make Koysha an ideal site for domestic and international tourists.
Home to a series of crater lakes, Wenchi, is an oasis in the heart of the Oromia region.
Birthed by a series of volcanic eruptions along this corridor of the Rift Valley, hot springs, rivers and waterfalls cut through the land – creating a rare paradise on earth.
On the northern shores of Ethiopia’s largest lake, Gorgora awaits. A former capital of Ethiopia, this undiscovered gem, a stones’ throw from Gondar, combines medieval history with the unspoilt shores of Lake Tana.
This sleepy port town will enchant with its offer of ancient monasteries, lakeside relaxation and endemic wildlife.
These projects will
- create green local jobs
- mobilise the service sector
- generate foreign and domestic currency for communities
- increase Ethiopia’s share in global tourism
thereby supporting the country’s home-grown economic reform agenda, propelling the tourism sector and sustaining our development.
As a first step, Embassy staff have each pledged a month of their salary to the support the initiative and we are now opening up donations to the Ethiopian diaspora and all friends of Ethiopia in the United Kingdom.
“It takes a daring few to reach a tipping point in achieving a desired positive result. The brave few that take a leap of faith without a guarantee of the outcome.”
H.E Dr Abiy Ahmed Ali, Prime Minister of Ethiopia
