Addis Abeba, August 30/2017 – At a day-long forum held at the UN conference center on Tuesday August 29 under the theme “Ensuring Creative Innovative Spaces for Youth Engagement in Ethiopia”, three 17 year-old student innovators who traveled from Kombolcha, about 255 Km NorthEast of Addis Abeba, became the unexpected spotlight of the show.   The three young creative (and curious) students: Nuru Jamal, Anwar Wudu, and Fikir Legesse, have showcased their hand-made products that include, among others, a solar operated water pump, FM broadcaster, a helmet with a fan, a spy robot, a traffic jam censor (and yes, a web browser that doesn’t recognize Facebook!), to a roomful of applause and admire.
