“A service trip to Ethiopia sparked my interest in philanthropy.”
Siobhan is a marketing intern for a fundraising and philanthropy consulting firm in New York City. In the summer of 2012, Siobhan ventured on an eight-day service trip to Ethiopia, an experience which ultimately had a huge impact on her life. She produced a documentary based on her experiences and all of the organizations she visited, including ILAE, Seeds of Africa, and UNICEF (a partner organization to Save the Children). Siobhan hopes to continue generating publicity for these organizations by promoting her documentary and through her work at Voice Ethiopia. After traveling to the country and seeing all of these organizations first hand, she knew she had to help, because she believes in the great work they are doing to help Ethiopia and its people, and sees the need for as much support as possible.
