  • Description

    Description

    We are a small Ethiopian athletics tourism and renewable energy company. We organise altitude training and hiking for every level of fitness enthusiast. We also run an athletics club, through which we work to broaden our athletes' skills in areas such as English, communication skills, athletics coaching and massage. Our solar energy work, meanwhile, contributes to the electrification of off-grid Ethiopian households, which constitute 70% of the country's population.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Spending time with us presents an excellent opportunity for independent, self-starters to apply their internet, computer design, photography, video editing, proposal writing and / or conversation-focused English teaching skills with a small Ethiopian company. Taking part in running or hiking does not have to be of interest to you but, if it is, you can gain first-hand experience of training at altitude and mixing with athletics enthusiasts. You'll also mix with renewable energy specialists. Expect fresh food. Prepare to experience (as well as to contribute to!) Addis Ababa's rich culture and social life. You can also learn some words of Amharic.
