Atlantic Canadian woman’s work with women, girls in Ethiopia inspired by the people she helps

Growing up in Clyde River, P.E.I., Rebecca Gass never would have imagined that she’d end up living in Ethiopia someday, working on a project to help young girls continue their education.

Her journey with international work started in 2008 when she attended a session at her university about voluntourism. It inspired her to take her first trip abroad to volunteer in Thailand, an experience that changed the course of her life.

After that trip, she spent several years working at home and volunteering with local organizations but eventually, she connected with Marian White, who was working for Cuso International on the Island.
