This week we’d like to introduce you to another valuable member of our in-country staff in Ethiopia. Ephrem acts as a program manager in Ethiopia and has been a long-standing employee of America World, working with us since 2008. As a program manager, Ephrem has many responsibilities related to children’s paperwork and the referral and court process. Some of these responsibilities include: completing paperwork for MOWCYA regarding dossiers, inspecting children’s profiles and clearances, compiling family’s dossiers with children’s profiles and submitting them to MOWCYA, preparing investigation summaries and referral summaries. Ephrem has also been involved in arranging investigations with orphanages and carrying-out interviews and investigations by interacting with birth parents and police officers. We are thankful for Ephrem’s commitment to the work of America World and the many hats he wears. He is an important part of the team that makes it possible for children to be matched with loving families!
