My name is Dawit and I am from Ethiopia. My wife, Aless, and I are blessed with our son Barok, who is 4 years old. Early in 2021, we moved from Ethiopia to the US, in Oregon.
Not long after we moved here, I received the humble invitation from Dr Arturo Echeverri and James Huskey to join the board of Tomorrow Come Foundation, so that I can contribute and support the bold mission of the foundation that strives for the future betterment of the Ethiopian orphan children through quality education and health care provisions. My wife and I prayed about it and accepted the invitation with an honor as this plan was truly from God, not something popped accidentally in the minds of my friends. To make the long story short, I have had several past work-related engagements, friendships, and relations with both sides and in many circumstances. It is such a privilege for me to keep serving the children that I love most, and an opportunity to give back to my country too.
I have over 14 years of work experiences in the international development sector leading and managing international and domestic non-governmental non-profit organizations that address the needs of global health, children, sustainable WaSH (water, sanitation, and hygiene), nutrition, education, childcare development, and communities in general.
It is my earnest prayers and desires to contribute with tangible and significant assistance for the furtherance of better understanding, peaceful and friendly relations among the stakeholders based on country’s context, people’s culture, and values.
Please join me glorifying the LORD for all his wonderful deeds in our life. We are serving an amazing God, and his plans are always good for all his children.
