Ethiopia + Diaspora

The Ethiopian Diaspora Fellowship (EDF) is designed to promote leadership development, public service and creative storytelling. Through training, service in an organization in Ethiopia, peer-to-peer mentorship, and storytelling, fellows will have an opportunity to increase their own cultural identity and be a catalyst for growth and change in Ethiopia.

Ethiopian Diaspora Fellowship serves as an avenue for young professional Ethiopian diaspora to reengage with Ethiopia and Ethiopian organizations and businesses in a meaningful way. Our fellows are trained in three areas - leadership, service, and creative storytelling. They live in Ethiopia for 6 months while working at our partner organizations. They have peer-to-peer mentors for culture sharing and knowledge sharing experiences. Lastly, they are telling their story - whether through Instagram, journaling, blogging, vlogging, etc. - we want our fellows' voices to be heard. 

LEAD - We believe a small group of great leaders can impact a nation

SERVE - We believe service leads to growth

CREATE - We believe in the power of storytelling to share authentic experiences and inspire change
