    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Spending time with us presents an excellent opportunity for self-starters to advance marketing, promotion and web skills or conversation-focused English with a small Ethiopian business. You can gain first-hand experience of living and training at altitude alongside the best (if running is of interest to you, but it doesn't have to be), while also mixing with elite athletes, experiencing Ethiopia's rich cultural and social life, and eating fresh healthy Ethiopian food. You can also hone IT, design and marketing skills and learn some Amharic.
