The Awra Amba Experience

The Awra Amba Experience

A rural village in Ethiopia has combated poverty by making men and women equal, educating all its children and eradicating conflict.

Learn about their solutions in an interactive 360 web experience, ask questions directly to the villagers and contribute your own ideas to a global discussion about a more sustainable future.

“This is a fascinating story of self determination, that should be part of any dialogue about international development strategy.” — Brian Newman, former CEO of the Tribeca Film Institute

“I think that The Awra Amba Story is currently one of the very interesting up-coming projects.” — Ilo Von-Seckendorff, Dok Leipzig
