Football fans in East Africa (including my friends in Ethiopia!) will be watching from the sidelines as the World Cup kicks off for the first time on Africa soil. No country from the east of the continent qualified for South Africa. Read more here from BBC news, they simply don't have the investment.
On Wednesday June 23rd we can miss period 5 for England's final group game and buy a ticket to raise money for Link Ethiopia and provide much needed football facilities and support numerous vocational training programs in Ethiopia. We can buy a ticket for 50p and watch the footy.....or we could go to lesson! ;)
