Actress and ActionAid ambassador Emilia Fox recently travelled to Ethiopia, where over a quarter of the population live below the poverty line. Her diary highlights what she saw of our work helping women and children in extreme poverty to change their lives, and tells about the inspiring people she met. Scroll down to see the video of her trip.
I visited Annaso school, where the classrooms are small rooms made of mud and straw with few desks or benches to sit on. Sometimes the rooms have to hold 60-100 children.
This is one of seven schools being supported by ActionAid in Ethiopia.
