What we do...

Ethiopiaid works with Ethiopians to help transform their lives. With our amazing supporters we work for an Ethiopia without poverty, in which every person enjoys the right to quality education, healthcare and a life of dignity.

How we do it...

We support our Ethiopian partners whose work addresses issues ranging from maternal health and women's welfare, to education and disability. We do this by securing funding for Ethiopian projects run by Ethiopian people. 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 2015, please read our most recent newsletter.

  • Maternal Health

    Ethiopia has one of the highest rates of maternal mortality in the world with 10,000 new cases of fistula each year.

  • Destructive Diseases

    Over its 25 years, Ethiopiaid has focussed on supporting projects that prevent and treat people living with Noma. Noma (cancrum oris) is an acute and ravaging gangrenous infection affecting the face.

  • Education for all

    There are approximately 150,000 children living on the streets of Ethiopia – and 60,000 of those in Addis Ababa.

  • Women’s Welfare

    Adolescent girls often face harmful traditional practices and discrimination such as FGM, gender-based violence, trafficking and child marriage.

  • Disabilities

    There are 6 million disabled people in Ethiopia, many of whom are denied access to education and are rejected by their families.
