Dear Nigel,

Your desire to help improve living conditions in Ethopia is quite admirable. If you're interested in working in Ethoipia, it's a good idea to make contact with organizations that provide services within the country's borders. Consider contacting the UK-based charity EthiopiaAid to discuss the best way to get involved in changing things in Ethiopia. You might also be able to get information about how you can help in Ethiopia by contacting the people in charge of the World Linkages Ethiopia project. Best of luck in your effort to make a difference in this poverty stricken country.

Dear Edriss,

The first thing you'll need to do is find out what's involved in getting a permit to work in the country where you hope to find a job. You can find details regarding how to get a Qatar work permit on the Quatar government's website. It seems that you can apply for a work permit after arriving in the country, but you'll need a local sponsor in order to be approved. Once you're fairly certain you meet the requirements for working in the country, start researching job openings in restaurants. Contact the owners to verify that they're hiring, and inquire regarding their policies on sponsoring employees from other countries. Good luck in your job search!
