2014 August - Rainy Season Work
August is the middle of the rainy season, when the rain is heaviest. Sometimes the mornings are dull and damp and there’s no sunshine all day. But usually it rains in the afternoon, evening and night, and the mornings are bright and sunny, enabling work to continue on building footpaths and play areas in preparation for the school re-opening in September. For the second year running, Habte Bitwoded has spent his holiday working at Empress Mentewab School. Habte is a student who will begin the third year of his Food Technology degree course at Bahir Dar University in September.
