An interview was conducted with one of the students of PROJECT-E, Yemisrach Seyoum.
PROJECT-E was part of the largest hospitality and tourism event in Ethiopia and one of the biggest in Africa that took place from 8th to 11th June 2017 – the Hotel Show Africa (HSA). There, we were able to present our project and its objectives to a diverse audience.
The Hamburger Initiative für Menschenrechte (HIM) honours innovative projects, this year under the slogan Project in Africa – Alternatives to Migration. We are proud to announce that PROJECT-E has been awarded as one of two African projects in the ceremony on April 4 2017 in Hamburg, Germany.
After Germany and Austria, Switzerland just became the third country, in which PROJECT-E is registered as an association.
Our students got to visit the Castel Winery in Ziway in January to learn about growing of grapes and wine making. They were accompanied by our volunteer Iga, who captured the trip in photographs and words.
On the first weekend of the year, the PROJECT-E team came together in Vienna, Austria to kick off the year by evaluating ongoing work, making new plans and meeting old and new team members and friends.
In autumn, the members of the Management Board Moritz Kolbe and Julia Schubert visited the Project-E Hospitality Institute (PEHI) in Addis Ababa again. They here report their impressions and give a general view of how Project-E is organised.
