As a volunteer with Cuso International I build capacity in Ethiopia’s education system. International development cooperation is an extraordinary opportunity to strengthen the links between countries and people. It gives Canadians like me a chance to learn from and contribute to our global community through the sharing of professional knowledge and skills; this is a means for Canada and Canadians to make a positive impact around the world.
Over 15,000 Canadians have been sent overseas by Cuso International and its strategic partner VSO, to address root causes of poverty, inequity, and other issues related to the Millennium Development Goals. I am deeply committed to the principles of international cooperation and building a more equitable world.
