Every Friday, our students prepare presentations to practice holding speeches, interview each other and recite poetry or prose what they find inspiring or wrote on their own. One of our bright, young students at the Hospitality Institute, Emebet, has inspired all of us with her passionate speech about finding strength in one’s disability so we asked a little bit further.We questioned her about the challenges she has faced in life so far and what she thinks about the impact of PROJECT-E on her life.
PROJECT-E is has brought together staff and students of both its education colleges to celebrate past achievements, share ideas for the future and enjoy each other’s company. This cozy get-together was a special day to all of us.
How you ever heard about Fasika, the most important Ethiopian holiday with interesting traditions and special eating habits – we have interviewed our housekeeper Alem about Fasika is celebrated and how she prepares for the festive time.
PROJECT-E benefits a lot from all the volunteers from Europe and Ethiopia, that put a lot of effort in supporting the project. Eskedar is one of the local volunteers who wrote a personal report about her work and experiences at PROJECT-E.
Another special night was hosted in February: The Lottery Dinner, the first prize of our lottery at the Open Day: The five guests and staff enjoyed a delicious three-course-menu that was cooked by the chef of the Nexus Hotel and served by our students.
The year started out with the 12th strategy weekend of Team Europe in Vienna – plans have been made, events planned and the team has become an even closer one!
Our students have successfully finished their first practical period in the hotels of Addis Ababa. Our student Dibora has talked with us about the challenges and accomplishments of this intensive internship time.
