The Mennera Institute (Local NGO)- Harar Cultural and Heritage Center, Jugol Harar, Ethiopia
This model-project provides a framework of actions aimed towards the revival of Jugol, a UNESCO world heritage site. It involves the restoration of several key buildings of a distinctly Ethiopian style of architecture, creating a knowledge center for the promotion of traditional culture, social cohesion and religious tolerance, the creation of a center for the production of traditional handicrafts as well as the creation of a learning eco-tourism guesthouse, which would provide for the sustainability of the center.
