Events

Our events are a wonderful way to support GreenLamp projects, socialise with friends and meet like-minded new ones. In addition to the more formal gala evenings, we host guest speakers and private movie showings, as well as our exclusive Membership Circle events,  for anyone interested in learning about Ethiopia and our work in more depth. These events tend to sell out very quickly so if you’d like to receive free email updates about forthcoming GreenLamp events please sign up for our mailing list, or become a GreenLamp Member to enjoy early invitations and reduced ticket prices.
