Project Description

Public Affairs Section (PAS) Addis Ababa and USAID Ethiopia are launching a nation-wide PR campaign to highlight U.S. investments in Ethiopia. This campaign will be carried out through traditional media (television, radio, billboards) as well as social media. To supplement the campaign, PAS Addis plans to start a weekly series highlighting the Ethiopian diaspora in the U.S. on the embassy's Facebook page. In addition, the virtual intern would be involved in creating digital presentations and one-pagers on our Public Affairs programs and exchanges for our external youth audience, including on the EducationUSA, American Spaces, and Fulbright, Humphrey, and Mandela Washington Fellowship exchanges.
