Before work could get started, we conducted a variety of meetings detailing Ethiopia Reads and my own expectations of the community during the build. The dialogue concluded with each of the community members (who were interested in working) signing a temporary employment contract/ liability waiver. These photos are of a few of the community members assisting us in translating (the docs are written in English and Amharic, though some of the village elders only speak local Kambata languages) and obtaining signatures from all interested parties.
If folks are curious to see the contents of the contract/ liability waiver, I can post the doc as well. Just let me know.
