ENP Intern, MASA Teaching Fellow in Rishon L'Zion
The last week at ENP has been all about marketing and fundraising.
I have been given the opportunity to redesign the marketing card that ENP uses at various events. I've been having a lot of fun looking into different options for the card but I am hoping to do something related to Ethiopian food because that is one of my favourite things about Ethiopian culture. I was researching berebere last Thursday and apart from being ridiculously spicy, it seems to be a wonder spice that can basically be added to anything.
Apart from marketing, I have also been finalising a few grant applications, some to big corporations and others to smaller foundations. It only costs $1,000 USD for each child to take part in the scholastic assistance program with this covering the extra tutoring, lunch and other activities, like field trips, for the whole year. I really hope these organisations see the great work that ENP is doing and help fund additional participants particularly in the scholastic assistance program.
It was also really interesting to see the photos and hear about the Tiferet Mission to Israel of the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago. The Mission visited the Youth Outreach Centre in Petach Tikva. The groups shared stories and learnt how to cook a few Ethiopian dishes. It really sounded like a great day of culture exchange (and fingers crossed I can be involved in one in the future)!
