What we do:

With your help we support projects in Ethiopia ranging from maternal health and women's welfare, to education and disabilities . We work for an Ethiopia free from poverty, in which every person has access to quality education, healthcare and a life of dignity.

Ethiopia has made huge strides forward since the devastation and despair of the famines during the 1980s. We continue to drive this progression and development further through our trusted partnerships, ensuring that no one is left behind.  If you want to learn more about the impact Ethiopiaid and our partners made during the first 6 months of 2017, please read our most recent newsletter.
