HOLLA II Launch event took place in Addis Ababa at Nexus Hotel from 26-27 April 2017. The launch was opened by a remarkable speech by Peter Brown, Director British Council Ethiopia. The gathering of fifty-eight young participants from different parts of the country led to a very vibrant and energetic team. As a result, HOLLA National Youth Coalition was established.
The objective of the National Coalition is the establishment of a capacitated, empowered, genuinely youth-led coalition for HoA through investing in young leaders from Sudan South Sudan and Ethiopia to become more engaged in community based actions promoting community cohesion and/or development.
HOLLA is a pilot programme funded by the European Union Delegation to Sudan and implemented by the British Council in partnership with a coalition of civil society actors in Sudan, South Sudan and Ethiopia.
