Free Being Me comes to Ethiopia

Last week, the body confidence revolution began in Ethiopia with the country’s first ever Free Being Me training.

You may be surprised to hear that there are currently no Girl Guiding associations in Ethiopia, so we were delighted that some of our ‘Guiding Champions’, who are doing some amazing work to develop Guiding in the East African country, organized a brilliant Free Being Me event in Ethiopia's capital city, Addis Ababa. It was an incredible week, where 20 volunteers trained as Free Being Me leaders and delivered the programme to over thirty girls and young women at a local school.

You can find out about the amazing journey of two of our Ethiopia Champions, Edda and Loza, in these interviews, and find out more about the Free Being Me week in the participants’ daily blogs:
