This week we are welcoming Emma, our new Development & Programs Associate, to the WEEMA team.
Emma's work with Ethiopian communities began in 2016 as a Peace Corps Volunteer. She spent three years working in Ethiopia and now joins WEEMA's U.S. staff in our Boston office. A fun fact about Emma: she speaks both Amharic and a local dialect, Hadinya.
"I'm excited to join WEEMA because it's an organization that brings together everything I believe in. I'm a strong believer in a modern method of development with a focus on local communities. I look forward to continuing my community-based work while gaining insight into the administrative side of development."
