World AIDS Day 2007 Events

Events are taking place in the various parts of Addis Ababa in connection with World AIDS Day. One such event took place on November 29, 2007 at the Addis Ababa Municipality.

Addis Ababa HAPCO in association with its partners across the city today hosted a ceremony for Addis Ababa's high achieving Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC). The event hosted 600 OVC who performed well in school over the past year; each child was given a gift to congratulate their achievements and enjoyed a vibrant concert performed by their peers. The ceremony included traditional Ethiopian dancing and an awards presentation for the 600 children. It was clear that each child was proud to be there and proud of their own achievements. The room was full of hope, inspiration and life.
