Welcome to our new Housekeeping Short Term students!

30 students began with the short-term programme at the PROJECT-E Hospitality Institute. This new programme aims at women who already got a family and have to take responsibility in their life while seeking change and further education. PROJECT-E is financing the tuition fee, equipment, breakfast, and examination fee to become a regular worker in one of Addis Ababas middle-class hotels!

Internships for PROJECT-E students

For PROJECT-E’s first year students it has been an exciting end to their academic year as they embarked on their internships at some of Addis Ababa’s most prestigious hotels in April and May 2018. This was always going to be met with a little bit of nervousness trepidation by the students as it was their first step into the public hospitality arena – it can be difficult at first to transfer the skills learnt in the classroom into a real scenario where there is extra pressure to perform well in front of potential employers. It was especially challenging for the students as they were no longer comforted by the collective presence of their peers – although they remained roommates, most of the young women had their internships at different hotels in Addis.
