Last June, IRC, an international organization that focuses on water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) presented Benti Ejeta, JSI’s learning and knowledge management specialist for the Ethiopia Data Use Partnership, with the first-annual Ton Schouten Memorial Award for WASH Storytelling. The award recognizes communicators who tell compelling stories about WASH efforts and their effects on people.

IRC recently interviewed Benti as he reflected on his year as an awardee and the opportunities that followed, including speaking at the International Symposium on Sustainable Water Resource Development; being interviewed on the Amharic service of German broadcasting service Deutsche Welle; and joining JSI.
