Day 2. Work visit in Ethiopia

27 March

During the day

Crown Princess Mary is visiting Ethiopia from March 26-27th. On her work visit she is accompanied by Danish Minister of Development Cooporation, Ulla Tørnæs.

The previous day the two of them visited Addis Ababa. On Wednesday the Crown Princess and Minister of Development Cooporation arrived to Shire, in Tigray - one of the cities in Ethiopia where most people of refugee populations are located. In Shire Crown Princess Mary payed a visit to, among others, a school in the refugee camp. The school became a reality because of a collaboration between Dansk Flygtninge, Norsk Flygtningehjælp, ARRA and UNHCR.

As part of her visiting the school in Shire, she planted a tree. Six students and the Minister of Development Cooporation helped out with the tree.

Crown Princess Mary also visited a home for unaccompanied minors, who have often fled on their own to be reunited with family members who, in some cases, have fled several years in advance.

During the day in Shire, Tigray, Mary embraced a practical outfit. A pair of convertible trousers and a simple blue button-down shirt. Comfortable sneakers, shapes and a mesh bun complimented a busy day in the Ethiopian sun.

Evening dinner

In the evening, Crown Princess Mary attended, as guest of honor, at dinner at Ethiopia's President Sahle-Work Zewde. She became Ethiopia's first female president last year. The Ethiopian government has ambitions to create equal opportunities socially and economically, and more and more women in Ethiopia are marking this as entrepreneurs and business leaders.

Crown Princess Mary enjoyed the evening along with, among others, Sahle-Work Zewde (Ethiopia's President) and Ulla Tørnæs (Danish Minister of Development Cooporation).

At her last event in Ethiopia, Mary shined in a printed dress and matching accessories. All four women attending had dressed in printed and colorful outfits. A great way to finish off an unofficial work visit.
