Ethiopian Team

Yewbdar -Country Director

Yewbdar Addisu, Country Director

My name is Yewubdar Addisu and I am Unforgotten Faces Country Director. I graduated from Addis Ababa University with my BA in Philosophy.  I work in leading the Unforgotten Faces team locally because above all else it gives me the opportunity to help the people in my country. When I received the chance to work with Unforgotten Faces I was able to take care of my basic needs while still being able to serve my people.  Working as the UF Country Director helps me to feel that I am creating my own history, that I have done or achieved something in my life by helping others.  We all have our own problems in life but if we step out and help each other we can overcome our problems and make the world a better place.
