Four years after Wenzel Waldstein’s first visited Ethiopia and had the first idea about an own aid project, PROJECT-E was getting started in Addis Ababa, looking for a potential local partner organisation for its project implementation. The project had been planned by a group of students and aimed at empowering former orphan girls, who don’t have a right to a children’s home’ place anymore when they have finished high school. An educational training for these young women ought to open new perspectives for them. The three-year-long vocational training to become a secretary and the national diploma which they received after graduation offers a great chance for an independent life. PROJECT-E designed the concept of the training with a great focus on practical training which the students gained in regular company internships.
