Organization: Qualimage Printing Corp.


Owner and President of Qualimage Printing Corp, a full commercial document printing company in Lakewood. Born and educated in Ethiopia, his social and political activism forced him to flee to Khartoum, Sudan in 1976. During this time he successfully organized the Ethiopians who were exiled into Sudan to have the full protection of the UN Refugee Commission. After moving to Denver, Colorado he launched Dial Food Corp, a consumer order fulfillment business, and he was active in bringing awareness and much needed aid to the victims of Ethiopian famine.

In 1992 Yoseph joined the Ethiopian Community in Denver in organizing the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. He is an ordained Deacon, assigned to the teaching of the faith, history and culture to Ethiopian children. Yoseph is also one of the founders of The Ethiopian Drought Relief Aid of Colorado. Most recently, he has helped establish 'The Ethiopia Day'. Yoseph is an African refugee who has assimilated to the business enterprise of the west, while remaining active in the social and humanitarian causes of the continent he has left behind.
