What We Ask of You

The Centre aims to provide a program that is interesting, challenging and contributes to positive social change. We aim to provide opportunities for learning and growth that have a healthy balance of personal responsibility, shared responsibility, meaningful interactions and fun.

Mekonen, Muez, Susan, Abade, Graham, Getachew Axum Hotel March 08Firstly we ask that you respect the intent of the program and the people and organisations that will host us in Ethiopia.

Secondly we ask that you engage with the program and with your fellow participants with respect, valuing diversity and different ways of understanding and working. We expect goodwill from all participants and an honest engagement in the processes. The facilitators will provide a safe and positive environment for participation and dialogue.

This may be by agreeing to share your knowledge and experience by talking to a wider audience say at work, at church or in organisations you are associated with. It may be that you join or contribute to an organisation working for others such as Wellwishers, Oxfam or the Fairtrade campaign. It may be that you work with other participants from the program to raise funds for those people you have visited through the Well Wishers program. The number of possibilities is limitless and further suggestions and plans will be discussed during the program in Ethiopia.
