What is Ethiopian Diaspora Trust Fund doing? Prof Alemayehu and Artist Tamagn explain

Responding to Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed's call for action and his message of love, forgiveness, unity, and peace, the Ethiopian Diaspora has accepted his challenge to save one dollar from their daily coffee expense. The Ethiopian Diaspora supports the bold peaceful political democratization reform launched by the Prime Minister and his government with the goal of achieving a durable solution to Ethiopia's socio-political and economic challenges.  The Ethiopian Diaspora Trust Fund (EDTF), aims to finance people-focused social and economic development projects. The Fund's objective will be working on making the highest positive impact on groups and communities in Ethiopia in such areas as health, education, water, and sanitation facilities. On an event held at the Ethiopian Embassy in Washington DC Professor Alemayehu Gebremariam and Artist Tamagne Beyene, facilitators of the fund discussed how EDTF will operate and what will be done to protect the donated money from embezzlement.
