Education for All

Ethiopia has one of the highest rates of maternal mortality in the world. In a country of 94.1 million, there are less than 1500 trained midwives. This results in only 10% of births taking place with a skilled attendant present.
There are 6 million disabled people in Ethiopia, nearly 8% of the population. They are routinely denied their most basic human rights –cut off from education, employment and healthcare. In Ethiopia, many live in extreme poverty. Read more!

With your help we support projects in Ethiopia ranging from maternal health and women's welfare, to education and disabilities . We work for an Ethiopia free from poverty, in which every person has access to quality education, healthcare and a life of dignity.

We continue to drive this progression and development further through our trusted partnerships, ensuring that no one is left behind.
