This week on Team Thursday, you will get to know a little bit more about Caroline Wanders. She was so kind and answered our three questions. Here we go.
It is time for Team Thursday again. In our second part of introducing the members of PROJECT-E’s Team Europe, we asked Stéphanie Chevalier Naranjo to answer our three questions.
Who are the people running PROJECT-E? You might already know that our Team Europe consists of different departments concerned with different tasks. But who is the person behind the task? To make this a little more touchable, we are starting the new series “TEAM THURSDAY”, in which we introduce to you the members of PROJECT-E, the people, who make everything possible in the first place.
By now it should be obvious that at PROJECT-E we owe every success to the hard work and dedication of our staff – both on the ground and online. We pride ourselves of being run by an exceptional team of passionate volunteers from different countries and backgrounds.
September is a wonderful time in Ethiopia and particularly the Ethiopian month of Meskerem that runs from 11th or 12th September to 10th October marking the beginning of the Ethiopian year. The countryside is lit up with the masses of bright yellow Meskel daisies and more sunshine flickering through the rain clouds, and it brings with it all the promise of the New Year.
Having started as a volunteer for PROJECT-E on the ground, it was the perfect time to visit the project again as part of the Management Board, discuss recent developments and brainstorm on strategic directions.
We are proud to announce that our first year of students at the PROJECT-E Hospitality Institute have successfully graduated in Level 1 and 2 Hotel Operations. The first ever graduation ceremony for our Institute was held on the 1st of July 2017 on our premises.
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.
