Camara Ethiopia’s country manager, Biniam Yayehyirad Kitaw, has recently completed a prestigious Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders. This is the flagship program of the US State Department’s Young African Leaders Initiative. The Fellows are accomplished leaders and have established records of promoting innovation and positive impact in their communities and countries. Of more than 35,000 applications for this year’s Fellowship, just 700 were selected to participate.
As a result of Covid19, this year’s Fellowship was virtual. Biniam participated in six-week Leadership Institutes studying Public Management hosted by Bridgewater State University, with other fellows from all over Africa. His Ignite Talk on “The Power of Education” was selected to feature at the Fellowship Summit, alongside other distinguished guest speakers. You can see that talk here.
