GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT ETHIOPIA AND ADDIS ABABA:
Ethiopian people are generous, and the country is beautiful and diverse and provides a lot of opportunity for nature lovers, but it must be remembered that the country is a developing one. Progress is slow, and you will not find all the conveniences you might find in western countries. Religion and an intense pride in their country's past resonate loudly within most Ethiopians. For Ethiopians, their land has stood out from all African nations and proved itself to be a unique world of its own. Home to its various indigenous cultures, languages (more than 83), script, calendar, the system of time, food, flora, fauna, and history. Ethiopia is the only African country to fight off colonization successfully. Rock hewn churches, 17th-century castles, and island monasteries are just a few of the more well-known tourist attractions. Addis Ababa is relatively safe with crime levels low, although pickpockets are common in crowded areas. Transportation around the city is by local mini bus (costs between 1.25 Ethiopian Birr and 3.60 Ethiopian Birr) or contract taxi (price negotiated before the trip and depending on distance). Both traditional and western food is available at the numerous restaurants and cafes.
Where are the schools? Various locations in Addis Ababa
Does the school have a website? Yes - [schooloftomorrow-edu.com]
When do the positions start? School typically starts after September 16th in Ethiopia, but the school wants you to get here ASAP to orient you to their environment before starting to teach.
What's the contract duration? All contracts are for one academic year.
Visa process: If both parties agree to the terms of the contract, the school sends a copy of your passport and a letter to your nearest Ethiopian Embassy (you may have to go to an embassy in your country of citizenship). Next, you'll send your passport to the embassy and pay for the working visa. It shouldn't be expensive but varies depending on the country. It should take around two business days to process. Once you get here, the school will take your passport to the ministry of immigration and change the visa into a working permit. You'll have your ID and working permit -- the latter stays with the school.
I look forward to speaking with you more shortly.
