“One day for Ethio street kids” is an event organized by Hanna Nicola, 18 years old humanitarian advocate, hopes to create awareness about street children in Ethiopia and a way for the community to give back.
The event is scheduled to take place at Kasanchis in front of Denver cafe on July 29, 2012. The organizers plan to carry on doing such an event annually.
On the program people will get to interact with the children directly getting to know them and later on they could donate money, materials or their expertise and time.
The event focuses on street children in Addis Ababa from ages 8 to 16 and also includes mothers and youth. It hopes to create a platform for street children and the community to get to know one another and interact for a day. The organizers worked with kirkos sub city; they provided the organizers with the list of children in need.
The organizers are currently selling t-shirts with the slogan “Yes! I care” at Edna mall with the proceeds going directly to the children.
Currently there are 15 volunteers working for the event. “Street kids are part of the community and we should get to know them and give back to them in any way we can.” the organizers said.
The Government estimates that 150,000 children live on the streets in Ethiopia, around 60,000 in Addis Ababa, many arriving from rural areas looking for work. NGOs estimate that the problem is far worse, with nearly 600,000 street children and 100,000 of these in Addis Ababa.
