On Sunday March 21 the first Lake Dembel Run was organized by the Oromia Tourism Commission, the Batu Mayor’s office and IDH. From Sher Ethiopia 100 participants competed in this running race (10 km) along the shores of Lake Ziway (currently branded as Lake Dembel).
The aim of the event was to create awareness on the need for sharing responsibilities for the shared resources of the lake and the catchment and for that to build stronger and better partnerships for joint action. On Friday before the race a lot of companies and citizens teamed up to clean the shores.
Congratulations to Tariku Rameto, a Sher employee who came in third place!
