9,556km from Cork to Ambo!
It’s time for our annual Ambo Ramble, this year going virtual.
For the month of June 2021, Run, Walk, Cycle, Swim or anything else you can think of and raise money for a great cause!
Your donations are critical to help support the students at the ALDS, thank you for your support from all of us at EDP.
Please join us in this great event. We are designing flashcards for the children in the Ambo Lazarist Deaf school.
The children will use the flashcards to sign out what they see on the card.
The cards will have words in both English and Oromo (which is the language they speak in the village)
There is a variety to choose from, you could send numbers / colours / letters – pick your favourite!!
You simply need to download whichever PDF you like, either colour it yourself or with children.
When it is completed scan it back onto the computer and email it to “firstname.lastname@example.org“. (Check your spam for our response!)
or you may also post it to :
Horner Automation Group
Centre Park Road,
We will be running this initiative for the month of April. Once we have all the cards back, we will laminate them and ship them to Ethiopia.
It will be a fun activity for us in Ireland to design and its both fun and and educational tool for the children in Ethiopia to learn.

Unfortunately due to Covid-19 we were unable to take part in the Womens Mini Marathon “Lydia’s Run” this year.
We have decided to dedicate the month of October to Lydia’s Run… so if any of you out there would like to do a 5km walk or run and make a donation towards the upkeep of “Lydia’s Place” it would be great. Maybe you would share a photo with us and nominate a friend or two to join in!
Lydia’s Run is in Memory of our Dear friend Lydia who left this world far too early.
Lydia’s Mom and Dad, Louise and Denis O’Mahony decided to support and fundraise for a place in Our Deaf School where the children could simply “BE”, to have space for themselves, to discuss how they were feeling, to learn through fun, to have some one on one time with the teachers.
A place where their whole self is looked after not just their education. We call this Place “Lydia’s Place”!
