„Thanks to the LEED Programme by the Kühne Foundation, I was eligible to study in the newly designed undergraduate degree in Logistics and Supply Chain Management at Mekelle University in Ethiopia. As top-graduating student I was awarded a scholarship for an abroad master programme at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, UK. I am currently in the final weeks of my postgraduate degree, and benefited tremendously from the opportunities offered by the Kühne Foundation.
Their support for the education system related to the logistics sector in Africa is very comprehensive, of high quality, and long lasting. I am delighted to have obtained an education at international standard, and I am really looking forward to drive progress and change in logistics in my home country as a graduate and logistics professional very soon.”
