Ethiopiaid Australia - A New Way to Create Change.

Maternal Health

Only 1 in 10 women will have their birth attended to by a skilled professional. Help us to ensure that the 9,000 women each year who develop obstetric fistulas return to their families healed, happy and proud - and help us to eradicate it completely by 2020. Find out how...

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.
