Watch with Rick Steves — Ethiopia: A Development Story

Enjoy Rick's live Monday Night Travel party with this video recorded on January 4, 2021. Experience the intimacy and spontaneity of joining Rick in his living room as he shares his personal and inspirational behind-the-scenes commentary.

Venturing beyond Europe, and with local experts as his guides, Rick uses Ethiopia as a classroom for understanding global hunger and extreme poverty — and how to beat it. Together, we witness the importance of water, education, empowering women, and nutrition during a child's first thousand days. And we see firsthand the impact of globalization and climate change. Our souvenir: A vivid appreciation of how ending hunger is possible — and how smart and modern development aid is the key.
