Samuel Gebru, the Founding President of the Ethiopian American Youth Initiative, is on official visit to Ethiopia. The Ethiopian American Youth Initiative is known for its assistance to the Fistula Hospital, Famine Relief, and Abebech Gubena in Ethiopia. Samuel Gebru is an exceptionally talented young Ethiopian American from Boston area. He flew the Ethiopian Airlines, ET501, from Dulles International Airport and arrived in Addis Ababa Bole International Airport on Sunday, 13th of July 2008 at 7 PM.
According to my sources, he will stay in Ethiopia until 24th of August, 2008. During his stay, he will undertake fact-finding and participant-observation regarding social, political, and economic problems facing the Ethiopian polity. Besides, he will forward questions he collected from various Ethiopians through his site to concerned high-ranking government officials.
