Sports in Ethiopia on IVDWritten by Cristina
I am pleased to share with the attached pictures the activities to commemorate IVD 2013 in Ethiopia. On December 5th, IVD was celebrated at Bahir Dar.
The activities were announced via FM local radio to create awareness and attract the youth as many as possible.
Cycling competition was the first event and it was started with girls competition followed by youth boys. In a similar fashion, there was two Swimming competitions (Girls group and Boys group). Both computation was given local media coverage (FM radio and local TV). On the FM radio the two events have been already aired during sport programme at 12:00 am and NUNV Yonas had a telephone live interview regarding the event and its objective. It was also covered by the local TV programme. There was also a football game between national and international volunteers followed by a rugby match.
