Our FFH Ethiopia project is on. The AFH Cape Town team went for the Initial Site visit last month and visited the center host's, Sport – the Bridge, facilities on site.

The Addis Ababa Football for Hope Center is located on the Jan Meda Raceground which is in the North East part of the capital.

Mark Warren, our Design Fellow in Cape Town, just finished the Design Brief (pdf) and handed over the project to our new Design fellow Matthew Hughes (having just finished the Sauti Kuu Banda project in Kenya) who will be working on the design and construction of the center from now on. Welcome to the team Matt!
