ImageDeparting Grande Prairie on February 20, 2015, you will fly to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and then travel some 2,000 km, visiting a variety of projects in at least six different communities.  You will get to meet the local people, eat their food, sleep in their huts, learn of their difficulties and triumphs and see how the projects the SCRC has sponsored impact their lives. 

Return airfare is $2,500 (estimate) an additional $150 per day will cover travel within Ethiopia, meals, hotel rooms and all related expenses.  SCRC will pay the first $1,000 of member's expenses.

Maximum participation is 8 people. For more information contact Chris Andersen at c_ander@telus.net or 780 512 7022.
