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.

“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 leave a gift in your Will
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.

Set up workplace giving
Your business can be part of positive and lasting social change in one of the poorest countries on Earth.
By setting up a workplace giving program in Australia, you can grow customer loyalty, engage your team and stand out from the crowd while working towards ending poverty in Ethiopia.
What is workplace giving?
Workplace giving programs give employees the opportunity to donate a small amount of their pre-tax pay to a charity each month. It’s no-cost, easy to set up and it’s highly effective.
Some workplaces also match the donation amount specified by their employee to increase their team’s impact and build up their corporate philanthropy.
How can workplace giving boost your business?
Grow customer loyalty
3 in 5 Australians rate a business more highly if they support a social or environmental cause. Workplace giving and matched donation programs are one of the simplest ways to show your customers that you care.
Engage your team
Unite and motivate your staff around a common charitable cause. About 85% of staff feel it’s important to give back to the community through the workplace and just over 3 in 4 millennials consider corporate social responsibility when deciding on where to work.
Stand out from the crowd
Create a positive point of difference among customers and prospective employees by connecting your business with a mission to help some of the poorest people on Earth. The best thing is – you can do this without needing to leave the office!
Enjoy tax benefits
As workplace giving donations are deducted from pre-tax pay, employees have immediate tax benefit without needing to keep hold of receipts or make a claim at tax time.
Plus, all donations $2 and over to Ethiopiaid Australia are tax deductible, which can lead to significant savings come tax time if your business makes a corporate donation.
