As the monitoring and evaluation specialist for Speed School programs in Ethiopia, Getenet’s work focuses on program progress tracking and evaluation.

Additionally, he is developing a web-based data management system (DMS) that would allow partners to collect data and generate real-time reports.

Previously, Getenet was the senior project manager with Apposit, where he analyzed project cost, time, and scope, would meet with stakeholders, and evaluated the projects progress.

What is your favorite travel site or project to visit and why?

I enjoy visiting the Speed School program in the Wenji area of Ethiopia, because the students from there are always very creative and motivated to learn. It’s great to see in person.

Why did you decide to work with Geneva Global?

Geneva Global has an investment mindset, and guarantees that every penny spent will have a significant impact on people lives. That, to me, is important.

What’s an interesting fact that others would not know about you?

I motivate and support people to live a fuller and meaningful life.

What book, film or quote has shaped the way you think?

The Power of Now and A New Earth.
