Irob Cyber-Community Meeting Place
Why I am not shedding tears for my relative at Sinai prison (and it’s not because I am cruel)
Communiqué from ISESP Committee-Nov 2011
After we have posted the news of proposed fund raising dinner that is slated for December 31st 2011, many of you have raised some valid questions regarding the status of the program and its legitimacy.

Dawhan High School of the Irob Woreda in Tigray, Ethiopia:
IRROB.org has sadly learned that during this current month of June 2010 two Irob youths died of dehydration and starvation on the Sudanese territory in an overcrowded small car during a long journey to Sinai, Egypt. They were heading to their destination, Israel. According to the information received from Israel via telephone communication, the two young Irobs (their names are omitted purposely from mentioning here) were from Bobo (Addaga) and Aiga villages of Irob (Erob) Woreda, Northeastern Ethiopia, and were students who completed high school level education.(To read the full text, CLICK HERE!)
- "The present study is concerned with the sedimentation in the Assabol watershed in North Ethiopia and was conducted between July 2006 and July 2007. The main part of the evaluated data was acquired during the field study in summer 2006 in the watershed area (6 July to 9 September 2006). The aim of this study is to get a better understanding of the sedimentation processes in the watershed of the Assabol Flood Water Harvesting Scheme, especially with regards to the sediments filling the reservoir of this scheme. The Harvesting Scheme is initiated by the ADDA (Adigrat Diocesan Development Action) and the thesis should reveal practical information for this project. The thesis is written under the lead of Prof. Dr. H. Hurni from the Centre for Development and Environment (CDE) at the University of Bern." (Andres Strebel)

- Dreams! Dreams! Dreams!
"To dream is easy, but to turn a dream into a reality may often be beyond practical expectations. Nightmares,
however, may give birth to the dreams. How could the people living to the east of Adigrat on the steep slopes
of the Rift Valley be saved from repeated droughts and hunger? How could those people be provided with a
minimum of food security? How could the quality of their lives be improved? Their self-reliance was a remote
dream, an ambitious ideal, but too hazy to be seen as a practical short-term objective ..." (Kevin O'Mahonney, M.Afr.).

ECOTOURISM POSSIBILITIES: Irobland (Dr. ) - Irobland cannot not be transformed overnight from a degraded, isolated region into a flourishing one, but ecotourism development would open the way to further initiatives which could make the region an appealing destination for climbers, trekkers and ordinary visitors interested in experiencing a historic region and a mildly exotic traditional way of life. The greatest advantage would be for the Irob people themselves who would gain a source of pride along with opportunities for employment and a means of improving living conditions of future generations.
