WEF Fall 2021 Intern

“Through this internship I have learned so much about the internal operations of running a NPO, crowdfunding, and website design. This experience has given me the opportunity to give back to my community and country in a meaningful way.”

WEF Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 Interns 

“My experience at Wegene was important to me because it gave me the opportunity to connect with other members of the Ethiopian community in order to give back to the less fortunate. It was impactful to see what goes into this organization in order for it to sponsor so many families and break the poverty cycle. This internship also gave me experience with researching and applying for grants which taught me skills that I can apply to other tasks.”

“Working with Wegene this past year has been a very meaningful experience. I have seen firsthand the work that Wegene does to make a difference in the lives of Ethiopian families, especially with their focus on improving access to education and housing. I’m very grateful to have worked as intern, as I have been able to contribute to different Wegene initiatives and better connect with the Ethiopian community.”
