Tesfu Kahsay

It would not be an exaggeration if I say Kimmage Development Studies Center (KDSC) is a unique place. It is unique because it has a transformative effect in my career both professional and personal. Kimmage is center of excellence aimed at helping students acquire robust knowledge and understanding of development issues through combination of theoretical and practical lessons. Renowned and knowledgeable instructors and staffs have created conducive environment to make the learning process adult friendly, effective and above all transformative. Thus, for me Kimmage will always have a special place in my heart for it has helped me to professionally grow and concurrently contribute to the best of my knowledge in improving the lives of the most vulnerable ones through my work in the development arena.

Since graduating from Kimmage in 2009, I have worked in different international organizations such as Save the Children, CARE International, Department for International Development (DFID) and now at Mercy Corps as an expatriate staff. All these achievements could not have been realized without the knowledge, skills and experience that I have gained from KDSC. Therefore, LONG LIVE for KDSC!!! Situation permits I would love to join KDSC again if they start a PhD course in the future.

That said, I would like to extend my warmest regards to all my instructors and Kimmage staff who made a difference in my life by sharing their knowledge, experience and skills during my stay in KDSC, Dublin, Ireland.
