What sets us apart

Positive change by Ethiopians, for Ethiopians.

We’re firm believers in people-powered change.

We’ve teamed up with local, grassroots organisations in Ethiopia. That means your donations go to local programs and communities, equipping people with the skills and resources to lift themselves out of poverty today and for generations to come.

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.

How this makes a difference

By funding local projects and partners in Ethiopia, 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 - things like education pathways, career opportunities and new health services.

Over time, your support helps to build up the knowledge, skills and resources among people and communities, enabling them to be drivers of their own 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.
