Transforming lives in Ethiopia

Transforming Lives Through Fundraising

Would you like to make a difference in Ethiopia and have some fun?

Join our amazing fundraisers and help change lives for good.

Whether it’s organising your own event, holding a virtual Ethiopian coffee ceremony, marking your birthday by giving in celebration, or challenging yourself to a run, swim or cycle, we can help you.

Find ideas, inspiration and resources to help you with your fundraising while following self-distancing rules.

Hold a Virtual Ethiopian coffee ceremony

Spice up your virtual coffee mornings and hold an Ethiopian Coffee ceremony over video, one of the most important traditional customs in Ethiopia.

Virtually fundraise with your community

Help your pupils or colleagues to understand what life is like in Ethiopia through interactive, virtual events such as quizzes, lessons and crafternoons.

Community Fundraising

Are you part of a community group, such as a Church, Rotary Club or Book Club, and looking to fundraise for us? If so, we have created a virtual fundraising pack just for you, filled with top tips, ideas and instructions on various events, including:

  • A virtual auction
  • A virtual Ethiopian coffee ceremony, inspired by long-standing traditions; and
  • A quiz night, teaching you about the customs and people of Ethiopia.

You can download this pack below and email Lizzie if you have any questions:

Individual Fundraising

We have put together a few resources for individuals who would like to take on sponsored challenges to fundraise for us. Our challenges include:

  • Running, cycling or walking 100 miles over a month- the same distance a Safe Motherhood Ambassador walks to reach a woman in need;
  • Learning how to ‘dance like an Ethiopian’, with traditional Ethiopian dances; and
  • Donating the cost of your commute in lieu while working from home.


We are always happy to consider collaborations with our supporters and/or small businesses. Although we cannot guarantee we will be able to collaborate, we very much welcome all inquiries and would love to hear from you about your ideas.
