Celebrating 2010 and moving ahead at the Ethiopian Global Initiative

2011 has officially begun and we at the Ethiopian Global Initiative family would like to celebrate our achievements from 2010 before we move ahead with our goals for 2011.

2010 Achievements

Open Meetings
EGI held open meetings in Washington, D.C. and Boston in January designed to build public awareness of our projects and goals for 2010.

2010 EAYI Conference
We began planning efforts for our June conference in March. Known as the Ethiopian American Youth Initiative at the time, our goal was to change names to the Ethiopian Global Initiative, gain international exposure and networks.

Canada Outreach
In May EGI started to discuss with friends in Canada about building networks in Canada to attract new members, donors and friends. Soon, a Regional Director was appointed to help in these efforts.

Research Associate Opportunity
This past summer EGI brought on college students and graduates to serve as Research Associates in the Cambridge Office. They helped plan projects and build contacts that have continued to work with EGI.
