Our difference

Positive change by Ethiopians, for Ethiopians.

We’re firm believers in people-powered change.

By working with local Ethiopian partners, we can drive positive change from the ground up, enabling people to lift themselves out of poverty today, tomorrow and for generations to come.

Here's what sets us apart

Local, not imported

We believe that truly sustainable change should be local, not imported. That’s why our approach is different. We partner up with local, community-based organisations all across Ethiopia who know what it takes to help their people and their region.

From birth to palliative

We’re one of the only non-profits in Ethiopia supporting complete neonatal to palliative care. We're there for the poorest and most vulnerable, regardless of age, gender or location. That means you’ll always be able to help those who need it the most.

Your support not only provides immediate relief, like food for a hungry child or surgery for a woman with fistula, but is invested into essential infrastructure for social change.

It gives people in Ethiopia the tools and opportunity they need to drive self-sufficiency and development.

It’s people powered change – by the people of Ethiopia, for the people of Ethiopia.

And it's making a positive and lasting difference Ethiopia-wide.
