The lepers of today
We work alongside local Ethiopian partners to bring trusted healthcare and education to some of the most vulnerable and marginalised people in Ethiopia.
That means you are helping create change that is local, not imported for a true and lasting difference in people’s lives.
Have a read below of the different areas of work we're involved in - and the different ways you can put your donation to work.
We teach about the dangers of female genital mutilation and child marriage to put an end to these traditions for good.
We equip orphaned and vulnerable children for a safer, brighter future free from hunger, disease and exploitation.
We increase access to and awareness of maternal health in order to make childbirth safer and eradicate fistula.
We open up equal education and earning opportunities so women can reach their full potential and be part of change.
Violence against women
We protect and nurture survivors of abuse while tackling the root causes of violence against women.
We provide complete care to those who are destitute and terminally ill so they can live out their lives with peace and dignity.
To this day, Ethiopia is one of the poorest countries in the world. More than one quarter of the population lives below the poverty line, roughly 1 in 5 children die before the age of 5 and only 39% of the population is literate. While the economy is fast developing, the poorest and most marginalised are being left behind.
We need your help to break this cycle of poverty and bring back health and hope to those who are most in need.
