The Registration For the third Guzo Adwa will be open starting from November 30 2015
Adwa is a place in the mountains of Northern Ethiopia. It harbors a history 120 years old that belongs to Ethiopians in all corners of the country. It is a place where Ethiopian troops of 200,000 citizens fought for independence from Italian colonization. King Menelik II and his Queen Taytu Bitul led the war by travelling a total of 1010 Kms across the country from the capital Addis Ababa to Adwa. The journey’s start date 120 years ago would be on October 13th this year (2015), which is also the launching date of this website. The war ended victoriously for Ethiopians on March 1, 1896 after five months of walk to Adwa with an Ethiopian army built out of people with different languages, cultures and beliefs but with one strong bond, being Ethiopian. This is a bright history of courage, strong leadership, unity and discipline that paid off in a thirst quenching victory.
Guzo Adwa is a walk to Adwa from the capital Addis Ababa covering 1010 kms in commemoration of the fight in our fore fathers to protect their land. This walk has been done for the last consecutive two years to start a trend of celebrating the Victory of Adwa from the beginning of the journey to battle through the series of wars that led to the final victory at Adwa.
This year the Guzo Adwa will take place for third time. It is planned to travel with 120 People for the 120th celebration of Adwa. The registration of the third Walk to Adwa form Addis Ababa will be open starting from Monday November 30 2015.
