Summer Trip

A fun summer trip has become a tradition at CCCE.  The trip rewards the children for all their hard work during the school year and rewards the staff for their amazing efforts.  This year the group returned to Lake Langano in the Rift Valley which is half way between Addis Ababa and Soddo.  Lake Langano is a tea colored lake and is very clean and schistosomiasis free so everyone could swim.  The girls had spent the day before the trip doing each other’s hair and nails and picking their favorite outfits to wear.

The group left CCCE in three buses very early in the morning.

The group stopped for breakfast in a field while it was still chilly outside.

The group arrived at the lake at noon and after changing into various swimming attire quickly hit the beach and the water.

After much swimming, playing, and eating a picnic lunch it was time to pack up and head back home to CCCE.
