Ethiopia - Good news and Challenges in 2020

Good news

Tariku Tesfaye, founder and manager of TDKET in Addis Ababa reports that no one of "his" kids was infected by Covid 19 in 2020

Yonas Gebre, who was one of the first children in TDKET about 20 years ago, has successfully finished his studies in the USA and meanwhile returned to Addis Ababa. A short time before his return, he received a very special award. His former college in Idaho declared him as "the most valuable player of the whole state in the last decade"

The challenge

One of the two tennis courts fell victim to road works. The demolition and construction works took place without prior notice and came as a shock to us all. Tariku and his elder students started to restore the second tennis court. Tariku complained about the damage to the local government, and thankfully he was allowed to take back part of the destroyed ground. He was able to re-construct the second court with help from the kids. Great collaboration!
