Visit “The Flower City”: Rochester

Dear members, supporters and friends of RRDANA,

First and foremost, we (the Board Members) would like to say thank you to all of you for your consistent support of RRDA since its initial inception in 2004. It is the incessant stream of financial, material and morale support of yours that gave the Association strong legs to stand on. You are the energy and lifeblood of RRDANA. All your support is yielding a harvest of success. The construction of a modern public library at Maichew is in a measurable progress. It is in the belief of your support that we started the project and we are truly touched by your faithfulness. You will reap the fruits (rewards) of your hard work soon. We will share the progress of the library and related activities with you on our website that is being created. LONG LIVE OUR SUPPORTERS!!

Ethiopia and its people

Ethiopia is truly a Land of discovery - brilliant and beautiful, secretive, mysterious and extraordinary. Above all things, it is a country of great antiquity, with a culture and traditions dating back more than 3,000 years. The traveler in Ethiopia makes a journey through time, transported by beautiful monuments and the ruins of edifices built long centuries ago.
