NGO Jobs in Ethiopia
Whiz Kids Workshop (WKW) is an Ethiopian-led and innovative social enterprise that focuses on improving the lives of children through educational media. We believe that mass-media is the most cost-effective and immediate way to spark young imaginations and make an impact on education.
