Adigrat: Feeling once again part of the Salesian Family, it was a home-coming feeling for all the Past-pupils who had gathered on 4 May for a friendly get-together at Don Bosco Gola', Adigrat.

Nairobi: 26 February was a day of jubilation for AET as one of its sons made his perpetual commitment to the Lord by professing vows of Poverty, Chastity and Obedience.

As a preparation for the great event there was a day of recollection preached by Fr. Silvio Roggia at the Resurrection Garden in Nairobi.
Zway: 13th May was a red letter day in the history of Zway Don Bosco, as it commemorated the 25th anniversary of the death of Abba Elio, the great Italian missionary who had worked and died in Zway 25 years ago. The Italian missionary had left a beautiful memory in the hearts of people which was evident from the hundreds of people young and old that were present to mark this day at Zway. People from all walks of life, belonging to different religions and denominations were already at the Don Bosco compound starting from the previous day to prepare the place and surroundings for this great occasion.
Zway: "Listening and Moving", was the title of the one day encounter organised for young people in the north (Makelle) and south (Zway) by the Youth Ministry Department of AET. Abba Isidoro Apostoli the provincial vicar and Abba Lijo Vadakken the Youth Ministry delegate were the responsible behind the organisation of such a meet.
