On January 2, 2020, both researchers and the support staff of the Tigray Institute of Policy Studies (TIPS) contributed a total amount of ETB 54,400 for the development of Tigray. The fund raising event was organized at the TIPS head office, Mekelle.
All members of the staff agreed to fully pay their pledge before the 45th anniversary of Lekatit 11.
The money contributed by the staff members of TIPS – a recently established research institute with the vision to become a trusted and competent policy research institute by 2025 in Africa through generating ideas on policies and practices- is expected to contribute its share to the ongoing regional development endeavors.
During the fund raising event, it was observed that all staff members have shown devotion and more commitment to contribute in any form and to sacrifice in the overall development and security issues of Tigray.
The TIPS management has been contributing previously in different occasions for the same purpose.
For TIPS, Tigray development matters!
