Hello, who are you?
I am Meti Tamrat. I heard about the CDAIS project in November 2017 during the milk demand stimulation partnership coaching plan validation workshop. This project is interesting because it is activated with little money but has a sustainable vision.
What are your roles and responsibilities as National Innovation Facilitator?
I have been a national innovation facilitator for the milk demand stimulation niche in Addis Ababa. I have the role of promoting contacts with others, implementing the coaching plan, facilitating multi-stakeholder activities, collecting data and capturing information during stakeholder discussions, participating in CDAIS-related activities, and writing up the progress of our niche activities. I work in the Addis Ababa Education Bureau as a school health and nutrition coordinator. I am also responsible for the monitoring and evaluation of the progress of feeding programmes and promoting closer cooperation and collaboration between different stakeholders to improve the school standards.
What has CDAIS changed for you?
I attended training course on review and reflection processes, how to improve listening skills, time management, strengthening individual, organizational and institutional capacities to collaborate and learn from each other within local partnerships, through inclusive innovation partnerships that promote sustainable resource use.
