In News by ilcufoundationCUadmin

Dublin, 20th April 2015 – ILCU Foundation  has been given a number of places, as part of our partnership with Gorta -Self Help Africa in Ethiopia, to participate in the Great Ethiopian Run.

This is in an effort to engage further with credit unions and to provide them with an opportunity to visit our projects / credit unions on the ground, More than 36,000 participants from across the globe are expected to run/walk/jog the popular 10km fun run (7,726 ft – above sea level), which takes place on Sunday, 22nd November, 2015.

Last year 4 Irish credit union representatives took part, including a credit union staff member, manager, director and chairperson. Needless to say this is a once in a lifetime opportunity! We would like to invite reasonably fit members of staff/ board of directors to participate. The main reason for this initiative is to provide an opportunity for Irish credit unions to gain a deep and robust understanding of the work we carry out and the effects it can have on credit unions in Ethiopia. The trip would include:

  • Participation in the Great Ethiopian Run on Sunday, November 22nd.
  • Visit to ILCUF/Self Help Africa projects in Ethiopia.
  • Sight-seeing in Addis Ababa.
