Maternal health

Ethiopia has one of the highest rates of maternal mortality in the world.  In a country of 92 million, there are less than 1500 trained midwives. This results in only 10% of births taking place with a skilled attendant present.

Harmful traditional practices

Adolescent girls often face harmful traditional practices such as FGM, gender-based violence and child marriage that not only threaten their health and livelihood, but also compromise the well-being and opportunities of the next generation.

Education for all

There are approximately 150,000 children living on the streets of Ethiopia – and 60,000 of those in Addis Ababa. More than half of these kids do not have access to shelter, adequate food or an education.

Education for all

Destructive diseases

Ethiopiaid has focussed on supporting projects that prevent and treat people living with HIV/AIDS and Noma.

Supporting the elderly

Ethiopia has over four million people over the age of 60. Because there is no welfare system, many Ethiopian elders have no access to a state pension and are unable to save for their old age.

Disabilities

An estimated one billion people in the world are living with disabilities. They are routinely denied their most basic human rights – cut off from education, employment and healthcare. In Ethiopia, many live in extreme poverty.

What we do...

We support projects in Ethiopia ranging from maternal health and women's rights to education, disability and the elderly. Ethiopia has made huge strides forward since the devastation and despair of the famines during the 1980s. We continue to drive this progess and development further through our trusted partnerships, ensuring that no one is left behind.
