Its been a wonderful 4 days in Addis Ababa in Ethiopia conducting a “Careers Workshop” for the very first cohort of graduates from the Pan African University – Institute of Water and Energy Sciences.

The 17 students that attended are the best and brightest in Africa, from Cameroon, Nigeria, Senegal, Burkina Faso, Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda, Algeria, Tunisia and Ethiopia. Caroline Sawe from the AltGen Kenya office and Sean Gibson, MD of AltGen, spent the time coaching the students on getting themselves out into the world of water and energy, and also on how to “Make your own job”: all too often we rely on others for our own successes, a paradigm that needs to be turned on its head as we become masters of our own destiny.

Thank you to GIZ for sponsoring, its been awesome!
