Small Steps: A Physio in Ethiopia by Julie Sprigg


This heartfelt memoir and travel story is about an idealistic young woman forced to confront the limitations of how much difference she can make in a country rich in culture but stark in its deprivations.

Julie Sprigg spent three years in Ethiopia, volunteering at a convent clinic and then teaching the first physiotherapy cohort to ever graduate from Gondar University.

In Ethiopia she falls in love, and learns as much about herself as she does about this complex, magnificent country and its people.
