Embassy staff pledge month’s salary to ‘Dine for Ethiopia’ initiative
As part of the ‘Dine for Ethiopia’ fundraising initiative, launched by the Prime Minister last month, Embassy staff have each pledged a month’s salary to support the development of three projects in Gorgora, Wonchi and Koysha.
The ‘Dine for Ethiopia’ initiative follows on from the hugely successful ‘Dine for Sheger’ project, which last year raised significant funds for the ‘Beautifying Sheger’ and ‘Entoto Park’ projects.

The new initiative aims to raise 3 billion Birr within two months and wealthier donors can attend a 10-million Birr V-VIP and a five-million Birr VIP dinner programmes which will be hosted by the Prime Minister in October.
A committee established to spearhead the resource mobilisation has begun engaging stakeholders at all levels. Donating is open to all, including friends of Ethiopia.
A new SMS scheme and a diaspora account have also been launched to expand fundraising activities (details below).
Foreign Affairs Minister, Gedu Andargachew briefed resident Ambassadors on the initiative, saying the “Dine for Ethiopia” National Scheme will create jobs in addition to building a green resilient economy and transforming the image of the country.
He also called upon the diplomatic community to contribute to the National Greenery and Beautification Projects.
Businesses and the community at large can buy tickets individually or for their family, or company.
