So It's been nearly a month and a half since I've started working at KMG (Kembatti Menti Gezzima Tope). KMG is a women's self help organization which believes that women have the the power to improve their own lives, just lack the tools and support necessary. KMG's most promising acheivements are reducing the rate of Female Genital Excision in Kembatta (350 km. South of Addis Ababa) from 100% to nearly 10%.

The organization is phenomenal, unfortunately the work is tough, time consuming and often leaves me to my own devices. My boss, Dr. Gebre, is a very busy woman, who has been awarded numerous international awards for her work with KMG. Like any strong woman who believes in her cause she's also hugely demanding- which makes working for her difficult sometimes.

I come home to Canada for a few weeks on July 18th. : ) Hugely looking forward to some much needed R& R and quality family time.
ciao!
