My name is Melanie Knight, Ive decided to write a blog about my experiences living in Ethiopia for one year as a Volunteer through VSO (Voluntary Services Overseas). I am working here as a database programmer with the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, a government office. The plan is for me to support the Ministry in setting up databases and training IT staff.
I have been a volunteer before in South Africa in 2003 – 2005, working with charities to set up websites, databases and train staff, which was an amazing experience but one I didnt record and wish I had!! So this time I am going to.
Hope you Enjoy!! xxx
