U.S.Professor Endorses EFSAF Programme

Professor Sisay Asefa of the Western Michigan University USA, who is teaching in Ethiopia as part of a sabbatical year, presented EFSAF award letters to 44 students at Addis Ababa University on Thursday 4th February 2010. These students formed the bulk of the third cohort of EFSAF awardees.

Professor Asefa specialises in the area of development economics. During his address to the students he stressed the importance of the education of women in developing countries. Where women did not receive adequate education or respect of their human rights the economies in which they live suffer as a result. Professor Asefa expressed his appreciation to the trustees of EFSAF for their efforts in promoting female higher education in Ethiopia.
