Cafes that exhibit artwork have long been a staple in Europe and the Americas. The trend is also starting to arise in Addis Ababa. EBR’s Meseret Mamo profiles a few cafes in Addis Ababa that are starting to exhibit the artwork of up-and-coming artists.

In 1975, the Ethiopian government undertook a robust land reform plan to create equitable access to land particularly in urban areas. However, forty years after these reforms, it seems that land access and distribution is all but fair, as prices for it continue to skyrocket. EBR’s Meseret Mamo explains what, if anything, is being done to change that reality.

EBR Staff Writer Meseret Mamo tells a story of how one NGO, Meseret Humanitarian Organization (MHO), is hoping to bring hope to the lives of single mothers in Ethiopia.
