Please understand that we are unable to offer commissions in Ethiopia. We try to provide as many Ethiopians as possible with a job and currently have about 644 employees in our projects, of which only three are Europeans. The latter are deployed in specialist areas in which no qualified Ethiopians could be found.
Language barriers present a further hurdle: in addition to many dialects and the main language Amharinya, we also find the languages Orominya, Tigrinya and Afar in rural Ethiopia. Only a few Europeans are familiar with these languages and English is hardly spoken outside the capital Addis Ababa.
The working group “Learning and helping abroad” will enable you to contact a wide range of organizations which undertake such missions: www.entwicklungsdienst.de.
