It is with mixed emotions that Green Empowerment says farewell to Elise Kittrell, our Technical Manager and Peru and Bolivia Program Lead. Elise will be moving to New York City at the end of June to start an exciting new role as the Water Programs Manager at charity:water. In this new role, Elise will have the opportunity to scale-up the amazing work she has done supporting Green Empowerment water projects to a larger portfolio in Ethiopia and beyond.
Since Elise joined our organization, she has been a valuable member of our team. She greatly improved our water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) toolkits, including design and training materials, and helped institutionalize our water quality standards. Her work and contributions, including the extended hours of dedication and travel to our program countries and engagement with are partners, are greatly honored.
While it is difficult to say goodbye, it is also exciting to see someone learn and grow at Green Empowerment and be positioned for this type of opportunity. Plus, Elise is a part of the Green Empowerment family and has joined our Technical Advisory Committee to ensure that our organization continues to grow and learn from her expertise working at the intersection of engineering and rural community development.
Please join us all in wishing Elise all of the best in this next adventure!
Green Empowerment is actively seeking a dynamic and passionate Technical Manager. This is a great opportunity for someone to chart their own course professionally, help us continue to improve on our mission and work with a global, dedicated and hard-working team!
