Echoing fine Energy of the SUN to the Generation.
"If you want to change the world, Don't work on children
rather work with Children"
SunEko Art for Social Development is a National Non-Governmental Organization and Non-profit organization located in Addis Abeba, Ethiopia.
It was inspired and founded by International Artist Solomon Solgit with the belief that Art can make a tangible social change in the society by the society for the society. It is intended to create to use Amateur sport, Art and Culture to build the society and to promote Ethiopia worldwide with Children, Youth and Women.
It mainly incorporates Children, Youth, and Women at different levels. The upcoming project is expected to benefit 150 Street Children and Youth in Adama, Ethiopia with circus and art training, visit programs, social circus shows, educational material support and tutor, psychological and nutritional support.
......... Ethiopia is a country where more than 90 million people live in cultural harmony. The number of the population and the acceleration in development have created the power and opportunity to observe various needs of society in general and children and adolescents in particular, as the largest part of society consists of them.
Ethiopia is a very young society. More than 50 percent of the population is younger than 18 years. The proportion of those older than 64 is only about 2.8 percent.
As a result, according to estimates, Ethiopia is still some 15 years away from the demographic dividend, which is conducive to economic growth, as the Ethiopian government, like those of other states with a high proportion of young economically dependent, has a relatively large share of their resources dedicated. This inhibits the country's economic power despite predictable growth forecasts.
There are more children than before with fewer opportunities.
To alleviate poverty, children from poor families often travel to cities. However, they do not experience any improvement in their condition as they live mainly on the street and have no access to education and schooling. Without the chance of education, however, they again have no chance to improve their situation.
Due to the hopeless situation, many young people come up with the idea to leave their homeland with the hope to find their luck in the distance and take a dangerous way to reach western countries of Europe. They long for the paradise in the west that they do not even know. But arrived here, they must first take disappointment. Many do not make the long journey.
The project of the project SunEko is to save such human lives and to show them also alternative possibilities in their country. The project is currently reaching 40 children and adolescents in the city of Adama. A long-term goal is to include more children and young people in the program, or to expand the concept in many other regions of Ethiopia.
Adama or Nazret is a city in central Ethiopia. It is located 99 km southwest of the capital Addis Ababa.
According to the 2005 census, it had 228,623 inhabitants. Adama lies at an altitude of 1712 meters at the transition between the highlands of Abyssinia and the lowlands in the East African Rift Valley, so that Oromo and Afar shepherds and Oromo farmers meet here.
Adama has rich multicultural and ethnic assets.
