“YEEP is a unique and real life experience. The students have the opportunity to apply their economic understanding and more important, get in touch with a different culture.” 


Role in the Project and Main Contributions

In summer 2014 I had the opportunity to visit my Ethiopian team members. Our aim was to finish our business plan for the ICT helpdesk project. I got in touch with a different culture and had the chance to broaden my horizon.

The days I spent in Hawassa brought me further – personally as well as professionaly.

My main contribution at the moment is being a mentor for the ICT helpdesk team, where my main responsibilities are to motivate the team members, help them with my input and reporting on how the team is doing.  I am convinced that we will be able to create successful and long lasting businesses in the YEEP project. The program is an enrichment for all: the Ethiopian students, the Swiss students as well as Hawassa University and Bern University of Applied Sciences.
