By getting better press coverage
By the government heavily promoting their contribution to society
By celebrities and footballers supporting campaigns such as Refugee Week
I think there is enough awareness already

Dance For Life
Dance for LifeDevelopment work in developing countries can involve some surprising methods.

One of Christian Aid's partners in Ethiopia called The Gemini Trust is pioneering the use of dance to achieve results.

'Dance For Life' is a short film that follows the story of Addisu Demisie who, with help from the Ethiopian Gemini Trust, danced his way out of poverty with the skills he learnt from the Trust.

Since then, he has become the major breadwinner in his family and is now passing on his skills to other people to enable them to work their way out of hardship.
