Where Ethiopia is located
Being a child in Ethiopia
For my report I did being a child in Ethiopia, growing up in Ethiopia education is a privilege. Even though most ethiopians cant afford to go to school, their achieving grades above 90%. The kids that do go to school often work 6-7 hours a day and 7 days a week to earn a small amount of money for food. All subjects are taught in Amharic (their main language) until grade 7, then English is taught. But their are some private schools that teach English in grade 1. High school is grade 9 to 12 its the same as north America.
Ethiopia is a third world country, Ethiopia is less developed but Ethiopia is still developing, most of Ethiopia is generally poor.
Christian perspective
Ethiopia is very beautiful with all the sights and amazing creatures we can praise God for that. But we need to pray for Ethiopia because a lot of Ethiopia doesn't have a lot money and food, I think other countries should give and share with Ethiopia.
The End I hope you learned something about Ethiopia
Main sports in Ethiopia
The most popular sports are long distance running, especially 5000m, 10000m and marathons. Ethiopian runners such as Haile Gebrselassie have won many medals at international competitions and the olympic games. Most Ethiopians play football (soccer), Ethiopia won the African nations cup in the 60's. But Ethiopia is more successful with running.
