What Australians are saying about Ethiopiaid:
"This is one of the most worthwhile charities I’ve ever heard of. My heart goes out to these poor women and their bodies. It makes me so grateful for the medical care we receive here in Australia. My love, prayers and best wishes go to all."
- Heather, Monbulk VIC
Meaning ‘Hope’ in the local Amharic language, the Tesifa Club is a special band of supporters who are monthly givers to Ethiopiaid Australia.
Tesifa beautifully describes the work you as a monthly giver make possible…
Because every day your support helps bring hope to people in need across Ethiopia.
Your monthly donation goes directly to on-the-ground partners in Ethiopia who have long-term initiatives in place to bring about lasting change in areas such as:
Training Safe Motherhood Ambassadors for safe pregnancy and childbirth in rural areas
Running safe shelters with food and schooling for children on the street
Providing free obstetric fistula repair surgeries for mothers in need
Helping adolescent girls stay in school with sanitary products
From $15 a month, you can bring back hope for a better tomorrow and a brighter future to those who are most in need.

Leave a gift in your Will
Leaving a gift in your Will is one of the greatest ways to leave your mark on the world.
If you are considering leaving a gift to Ethiopiaid Australia, your legacy will live on in the lives of women, children and communities across Ethiopia for generations to come.
Your legacy will make a true and lasting impact across areas such as health, education and equal opportunity. Most of all, your legacy will bring back hope for those most in need – hope that tomorrow does not have to be as dark as today and that, through you, the future can and will look brighter every day.
It’s the greatest gift to give in a lifetime.

“My involvement with Ethiopiaid started over 15 years ago and their focus on education has always been of particular interest. Having been a teacher myself, I know how it can transform lives.
Ethiopiaid listens to my requests and I feel connected to the partners they support. I have full confidence in their unique approach and plan to include them in my Will.”
- Ethiopiaid supporter, Julie, on why she decided to leave a gift in her Will.

Your legacy… Health
Your legacy will keep women and children alive and healthy, helping to cure debilitating conditions like obstetric fistula, train midwives in remote regions and educate communities about the dangers of harmful traditional practices such as Female Genital Mutilation.
Your legacy… Education
Your legacy will give children the chance to learn. From children living on the streets, to girls who are forced to skip classes due to inadequate sanitation facilities, to children from remote, rural areas, you can help ensure they all have just as much of a chance to learn as anybody else.
Your legacy… Equal opportunity
Your legacy will empower women to reach their full potential. Whether this lies in training for farming, finance or small business, or in providing mothers the means to feed their children and send them to school, you can help uplift women and give them the tools to achieve in life.
How to create your legacy
As advances are made in Ethiopia and needs change over time, we ask that you keep the wording in your Will regarding your gift to Ethiopiaid Australia as general as possible. This means your gift can go towards the women, children and communities who need your help the most. Suggestions for how to phrase your Will can be found via the link below.

Building a relationship with Ethiopiaid is a way to let your staff and customers know that you care about those affected by poverty. It shows that your company takes its social responsibility seriously and can enhance your reputation with your key audiences.
Partnering with Ethiopiaid can put your company in a unique position. We are a small organisation and have a direct and close relationship with our Ethiopian partners. As such the possibility to become a key supporter of life changing projects in Ethiopia and the commensurate good will this can generate amongst your staff and customers can add huge value to your organisation.
