Hotel Management Trainer

The Hospitality Institute is the local education project of the NGO PROJECT-E Education Empowers.

Education empowers - that is our mission statement, as we provide job opportunities for young Ethiopian women from underprivileged social backgrounds. Thereby we offer scholarships in hospitality management training based on the nationally accredited curriculum, next to our outstanding practical trainings with partner hotels as well as language and life-skill training. In total we are supporting about 200 students within our long-term program (Level 2 Certificate in Food and Beverage Service) and short-term levels (House Keeping and Laundry Service and Food Preparation) in striving for a professional perspective to become financially independent as well as to gain self-confidence and become empowered women.

What makes PROJECT-E unique is thereby not only our 90% success rate in assisting the students to find a suitable job after the training and our outstanding reputation in the hotel industry in Ethiopia with renowned partner and stakeholders. But also, our administrative structure and project management is exceptional: On the one hand, we have the local Team in Addis, consisting of roughly 17 solely Ethiopian staff members. They implement the project and are responsible for the academicals and sociological development of the students. On the other hand, PROJECT-E consists of a “Team International” with students and young professionals working voluntarily and web-based worldwide to coordinate and finance the operation.
