Great Ethiopian Run 2017
*Note Trip Dates are November 20-28 with possibly of flexibility depending on your personal travel plans.
For the very first time, Ethiopiaid Canada is running a donor trip to Addis Ababa, offering you a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit and volunteer with the organizations you help us support!!
During your visit, you can also take part in the Great Ethiopian Run. You can walk, run or jog the 10km through the streets of Addis Ababa, and join in the festivities with 40,000 other participants from all over the world - singing and dancing the night away!
The trip will take place between November 20th to 28th, 2017. Participants are expected to raise $4,000 for Ethiopiaid Canada. This will cover part of the costs such as event registration, hotel accommodation and participation in all activities. It excludes flight costs: participants are responsible for these arrangements as well as individual travel insurance.

Make a Donation
You can make a secure one time donation or set up a regular monthly donation through our website or by calling 613-697-4843.
Please consider becoming a monthly donor with Ethiopiaid Canada. Just $30 per month pays for school supplies and new clothes for vulnerable kids, nightgowns for fistula patients, or part of a loan for entrepreneurial women. With the reduced administration costs that come with signing up for a regular gift, your money has even more capacity to change lives.
Regular gifts also provide us with the security we need to effectively plan ahead and ensure that we make the greatest difference to the people of Ethiopia in the most meaningful and sustainable ways.

Leave a gift in your Will
“The people of Ethiopia are dynamic and engaging enough to create change for themselves, if given the chance. Your legacy could be that chance.” Sir Alec Reed, Founder of Ethiopiaid
In order to build on the amazing legacy we have already created together, we must prepare and plan for the future. It's time for us to establish the structures necessary to deliver permanent change to those living in poverty in Ethiopia. Please help us empower individuals and communities with the resources needed to achieve their full potential.
Gifts in wills are central to this strategy, as they provide the security we need to plan ahead. These gifts ensure that we help the greatest number of people in the most meaningful and sustainable ways.
