I am passionate about

Actions

As a student I always took for granted access to clean water.It was impossible for me to envision that so many Ethiopians were deprived of clean water. But as I traveled around and observed people fighting over unclean water,I changed my mind into thinking that it is possible and it is happening.I started an initiative for promoting clean water supply to Mekelle University.Clean water was a privilege that I always had in my life. I never thought that this initiative would turn in the establishment of my own NGO :Help for a Drop of Water(Now DOW) in April of 2009. I have always believed it is a priviledge for the youth to give something back to their community and i am proud i created that platform through DOW. DOW has been a bridge between rural communities and university youth students. I took the volunteer culture of my country into next level.I created largest platform where more than 3000 vounteers participate to give something for the community and engage in different community service works.
