Thanks for your wonderful comments. Would appreciate if you could let others know about the network. We are also always seeking potential field internship opportunities for the students in our MA program and have had many students work with various NGOs in Africa. If you think there might be some interest in exploring this with PACT/Ethiopia let me know.
