Two weekends ago the main speaker at our Young Life leadership weekend was director over many of the international YL groups. First picture he threw up on the screen was of an Ethiopian Young Life Club. We are going to see if we can perhaps visit them while in Addis. And I really want one of their t-shirts. Some info on YL Ethiopia and photos can be found here.
Here is an interesting article on household characteristics in Ethiopia. Some stats from the survey:
- Only 8 percent of households reported having drinking water on their premises.
- 14 percent of households have electricity, but this varies widely by place of residence. Only 2 percent of households in rural areas have access to electricity, compared with 86 percent of urban households.
- Slightly over three-fourths of households have no bedrooms or have only one room for sleeping.
