WISE has closed its 20th anniversary

WISE has closed its 20th anniversary ceremony colorfully with its target members, staff and fellow guests on September 22. Various kinds of competitions among target members, boards and staff have made the closing ceremony vibrant. Certificates of appreciation and gifts have been awarded to target members and staff who were with the organization for over 10 years.

Artist Markos Fikre, who volunteers for the organization said ''I was born in the same district that WISE is working and initially the whole youth including myself were upset because the organization took the playground that we use to play football. Gradually, as we see the impact of WISE in the community’s development, we realized that the organization stands for poor women and encourage them to work and become independent. ''
