INDIAFRICA Campus Outreach Event

May 18, 2012
Addis Ababa University, Addis Ababa

Together with the Addis Ababa University, the INDIAFRICA: A Shared Future initiative organised a Campus Outreach program at the Sidist Kilo campus of the university. The event was inaugurated by HE Ambassador Bishnoi who set the stage for some pertinent insights on the bilateral relations between India and Ethiopia, the perceptions both countries hold about one another, the commonalities that two countries share and the world of opportunities available. The students were inspired by the two young Ethiopian entrepreneurs- Bethlehem Tilahun Alemu and Sofanit Mulugeta who shared their journey and challenges faced with the youth. Young Entrepreneurs from India, Rustam Sengupta and Harminder Sahni spoke on extremely relevant issues concerning the rural areas of India and Africa. Responding to the queries from students, Seema Kundra, Director, theideaWorks said, “Challenges will always be there. Its how you embrace the challenges and overcome them that determines success.” The two insightful sessions were followed by a scintillating performance by popular Indian Rock Band, Parikrama who jammed with a leading guitarist from Ethiopia, Girum Mezmur.
