End Fistula by 2020
It is estimated that over 30,000 women in Ethiopia are suffering from obstetric fistula. Join us in supporting a national campaign to eradicate this devastating childbirth injury by 2020.
Ethiopia has one of the highest rates of maternal mortality in the world. In a country of over 100 million, there are less than 1,500 trained midwives. This results in only 10% of births taking place with a skilled attendant present.
Education for All
By investing in education, we can pave the way for children to lead healthier, more productive lives. Help us reduce barriers to education for some of the most vulnerable children in Ethiopia.
Empowering Women & Girls

At Ethiopiaid Canada, we believe sustainable change is inclusive and locally sourced.
Ethiopiaid Canada is a charitable international development organization committed to empowering people in Ethiopia to live healthy and productive lives. We seek lasting change by supporting interventions driven by local partners. At the core of our work is a desire to reduce poverty and improve the lives of those living in poverty by increasing opportunities and resources. Our programming focuses on increasing access to maternal health services, reducing barriers to education, and supporting women's and girls' empowerment. Through our inclusive approach, we seek to reach some of the most marginalized people living in poverty. Our work also recognizes women and girls as key actors in reducing poverty and achieving development. That's why we place an emphasis on interventions that build the health, social, and economic assets of vulnerable women and girls.
