We’re very happy to announce that Lizzie was presented with a Rotary International award for her work in Ethiopia at the Foundation’s annual dinner in Sydney recently.
Lizzie spoke on the night about Botanica Ethiopia, her research and involvement with the Fiche community over the last three years.
“I am very honored to receive this award from Rotary; a fantastic organisation doing so much good in the world, with many successful projects. It also brings attention to a small group of people in Ethiopia who are really doing some amazing things for themselves, and I appreciate that.”
“Thanks must also go to Blackmores, to the kind individuals who have donated their money and time, and to Australian non-profit organisation Global Development Group, who recognised the good foundations of the project and have provided partnership and ongoing support.”
Lizzie was named a Paul Harris Fellow ‘in appreciation of tangible and significant assistance given for the furtherance of better understanding and friendly relations among the peoples of the world.’
