Solomon Belay, Ethiopia - #3
Sep 03 2010
Solomon Belay recently returned from six months volunteering with the University of Addis Ababa in Ethiopia. Solomon was part of a unique program with CUSO-VSO that enables volunteers from diaspora communities to share their skills with their countries of orgin. In this podcast he shares his experiences working for the medical school and also what it was like for him to return to his country of origin as a volunteer.
Volunteer for a better world! Join CUSO-VSO, share skills and volunteer in 43 countries in Africa, Asia, the Pacific, Latin America and the Caribbean. Volunteer, donate, share skills.
I'm a Public Engagement Officer with Cuso International based out of Toronto, ON. I joined Cuso International after five years working with NGO coalitions in Atlantic Canada and Ontario. Through my own work overseas in Ghana and Nigeria I've experienced first-hand how transformational international volunteerism can be.Click here to see the full author's profile
