Student Profile(s)

Aberash Tsehay

“From this master course, I have acquired the knowledge that helps me to deal with gender issues. The course has improved my communication, managerial and leadership skills. Above all I would like to say it has developed my confidence to work in the area of gender, in any organisation, at any post. At this moment I am working as a programme coordinator in an International NGO (religious based). Even though there are other programme areas, women empowerment is the major focus of the organisation. In my part time I have got the chance of giving gender training to experts and development agents working in another organisation. Ethiopia is a developing country with huge development challenges. Due to the deep rooted traditional and cultural practices the gap between women and men is enormous. Women are at the bottom of the ladder in social, economic and political aspects. Although it is difficult to bring change and achieve gender equality within a short time, I will try to contribute to the ongoing efforts of Governmental and Non Governmental Organisations.”
