Hirut Yehoalashet joined OCF to fulfill her dream to work for nonprofit organizations. Her first experience was volunteering with Amnesty International in the Netherlands over seven years. She learned how nonprofit organizations make a tremendous contribution to the quality of individual life and for communities in general. Hirut enjoys the opportunity she gets from OCF working in different positions since 1997. When she is not at OCF, she loves hiking and camping and traveling internationally, especially in the mountains and helping kids living in the rural areas in her beautiful country Ethiopia.

“There can be no greater gift than that of giving one's time and energy to help others without expecting anything in return.”
