Team of researchers from Institute of Gender, Environment and Development was awarded £5,000 for a research proposal entitled “Challenging Sexual Harassment in Workplace: The Case of Mekelle University.” I am proud of my sisters (Tsigereda and Selam) and my brother (Desta) for responding this call.
I am also proud of my sister (Dr. Kahssa, the Director of the Institute) for sharing the call for proposal (that I sent to her). The moment she realized that it was not possible for her to respond the call because of her busy schedule. She decided to share it with her staff members and they applied and got the award. Therefore, she is proud of her staff and her staff make her proud.
One of the criteria set in the call was that the probability of willing the call is 1-2 percent. “If you tell your mind that you will do it”, then everything is possible and that is what has happened now. This is the end of the beginning, there will be a lot to come. Dear winners please keep on this momentum, the future is bright for you. If you work hard and systematic it will always pay off.
