CONGRATULATIONS to our fourth crop of graduates

The Ethiopian Roads Authority sponsor clever young engineers to do a masters degree. Destaw has made application and will hear in February whether, or not, he has been accepted. If he is accepted, his fees will be paid but he would need help towards his living expenses.

CONGRATULATIONS to our third crop of graduates.

He has recently started in employment in Addis Ababa.
For the second time we are able to give congratulations to our graduates.

BA in Cooperatives (Accounting and Auditing) with distinction from Hawassa University
