Transforming lives in Ethiopia

Fundraise for us

Raise money through events and help transform lives

Want to make a difference in Ethiopia and have some fun?
Then join our amazing fundraisers and help change lives for good.

Whether it’s organising your own event, running to mark the epic Great Ethiopian Run in Ireland – or in Ethiopia itself, taking part in the Women’s Mini Marathon, or challenging yourself to a run, swim or cycle, we can help you!

Find ideas, inspiration and resources to help you with your fundraising.

Community fundraising

Are you part of a community group, such as a GAA, Rotary Club or Book Club, and looking to fundraise for us? If so, we have created a virtual fundraising pack just for you, filled with top tips, ideas and instructions on various events, including:

  • A virtual auction
  • A virtual Ethiopian coffee ceremony, inspired by long-standing traditions; and
  • A quiz night, teaching you about the customs and people of Ethiopia.

You can download this pack on the right and email Frances if you have any questions:

Individual fundraising

We have put together a few resources for individuals who would like to take on sponsored challenges to fundraise for us. Our challenges include:

  • Running, cycling or walking the distance of your choice over a month;
  • Learning how to ‘dance like an Ethiopian’, with traditional Ethiopian dances; and
  • Donating the cost of your commute in lieu while working from home.
  • Ask for donations instead of presents for your birthday or a date that’s special to you
