Zemene in Hawaii

The Ananda Foundation hosts a screening of Zemene in Honolulu for Ethiopian, Behane Daba. Berhane is the winner of The National Peace Corps Association's 2015 Harris Wofford Global Citizen Award, the highest honor bestowed upon a global leader by the National Peace Corps Association. Berhane Daba is president and founder of Ethiopian Women with Disabilities National Association (EWDNA), an organization that works to empower women with disabilities with the skills and confidence they need to become economically independent. Daba advocates for equal access for women and people of disability so that they can reach their full potential, something she has had to deal with in her own life. Berhane is an incredible role model and inspiration and Zemene is proud to know her!
