It was great to attend the Global Diaspora Week launch at the State Department on behalf of ‪#‎ethiopiareads‬ and ‪#‎openheartsbigdreams‬ . Among the lineup of speakers were Sec. Of State John Kerry, Thomas Debass, Managing Director of Global Partnership of the Secretary and of course the two times Grammy winner Anjelique Kidjo. It was a pleasure of mine to shine light to the amazing works of Ethiopia Reads and Open Hearts Big Dreams and exchange ideas and learn way to expand some if the projects by partnering with US Government!
