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 to improve the lives of those living in poverty by increasing opportunities and access to resources.
Our programming focuses on improving 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.
