Here at Ethiopiaid Australia, we're all about enabling people to change their lives.

Ethiopiaid Australia is a not-for-profit charity raising funds for our trusted community partners in Ethiopia. Our approach is different - we form partnerships with grassroots organisations known for their expertise and ambition, who implement approved projects that address maternal health, FGM and women's empowerment, education and poverty reduction.  We believe that truly sustainable change should be local, not imported. Ethiopiaid is here to give a voice to these incredible grassroots programs that otherwise would have gone unheard.
