We are in Ethiopia this week, virtually following along with the ONEMoms team as they traverse the country gathering material to share with the world. “ONE.org is a non-partisan advocacy organization dedicated to the fight against extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa. Backed by more than 3 million members, ONE .org works with government leaders to support proven and cost efficient solutions to save lives and help build sustainable futures.”-ONE.org
World Moms Blog is excited recently to have become a community partner of ONEMoms and we’d like to bring you along as we follow their trip of 12 ONE Moms traveling through Ethiopia from October 6th through October 13th.
The diverse group of ONEMoms includes a Supermodel/Activist, a Book Publisher, a Pig Farmer, Mom Bloggers, Food Writers, a Lawyer, a Scientist and a designer. Their goal is to meet up with Ethiopian women, agriculturalists and health care workers, and in doing so engage us in a global dialog on the important issues faced in Ethiopia.
Ethiopia is a fascinating country, and the only country in Africa that was never colonized. The Italian government’s long ago attempt to do so apparently left hints of Italian influence behind. It is the most populous land locked country in the world, and home to over 80 languages.
