Rotary Club of Addis Abeba Central Mella held an Ethiopian Literary Award. The aim of the award is to put the spotlight on the creativity and diverse wealth of Ethiopia’s contemporary literature in the field of fiction, and non-fiction to promote the circulation of literature within the country and encourage greater interest in literary works.
Through the award, we were able to promote books and encourage reading among the general public in general and children in particular. The project was funded with a 2000 USD matching from the club in partnership with Ethiopian Reads, Ethiopian National Archives, and Library Agency. Please visit for more information.
