Last Sunday, 5th March 2017, we established the association PROJECT-E Education in Ethiopia in Küsnacht, Switzerland. Finally, besides Austria (PROJECT-E – für Ausbildung in Entwicklungsländern) and Germany (PROJECT-E Germany) also Switzerland got its equivalent. The intended purpose of the association PROJECT-E Education in Ethiopia aligns with PROJECT-E and the idea of empowering people in Ethiopia living in destitute environments in order to enable them to lead an independent life and thus integrate them back into society.
We discussed lively in the inaugural meeting about the content of our constitution and upcoming activities, degusted Ethiopian fairTrade coffee from „Direct Coffee“ and finally had a social gathering in the Ethiopian restaurant Mesob in Zurich where we clinked glasses on the inauguration of PROJECT-E Education in Ethiopia.
Members of the board:
Caroline Wanders (President)
Petra Sidler (Co-President)
Carly Seedall (Secretary)
Roland Feuerstein (Treasurer)
We are looking forward to the future activities of the association!
