Sectors in Which we are involved

Fighting extreme poverty in Ethiopia, one of the poorest countries in the world, by providing access to clean water, renewable energy, healthcare, HIV/Aids victims’ support and education.

Over 1,000 people affected by HIV/AIDS have received health, community-service and subsistence support, through holistic support programmes offered in Ijaji Town, East Ethiopia.

Over 600 disadvantaged children have enjoyed free access to childcare services at Furi Ber Primary School in Akaki Kality since 2011. The service provides children with access to education and also allows their mothers to engage in work and thus support their families.

450 families benefit from access to free and clean energy supply to community kitchens, access to clean water and to community latrines, thanks to the installation of two biogas digesting systems in Shashemene.
