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:
1. What’s your background?
I studied Business, Economics and International Affairs and was very privileged to receive a high quality education in Europe. I joined PROJECT-E in late 2015 because it allows me to give back part of this educational chance to other young woman.
2. What’s your involvement with PROJECT-E?
I started with PROJECT-E in Addis Ababa for two months, where I had the chance to support the Hospitality Institute with its very first students. This was a a great and memorable time and helped me to better understand the circumstances, challenges and cultures in Ethiopia.
Now I am part of the fundraising team and founder of our Swiss association.
3. What are you passionate about?
Directly seeing the impact we create on our students. We recently celebrated our first year of graduates. The majority of them works now in well established hotels in Addis and have reached financial independence.
