GUESTS OF HONOR

Each year, ESFNA invites individuals that have excelled in sports in Ethiopia in the past. From soccer players to long distance runners that have made the proud nation even prouder. Besides sports figures, ESFNA also honors Ethiopians in the social and art field. If it were not for the invitation of ESFNA, most of these heroes would not have had the opportunity to visit the United States.
