What We Do

Christian Aid in Ethiopia

Christian Aid has worked in Ethiopia for more than 30 years, initially responding to emergencies, but gradually building a long-term development programme.

Our work has focused on food security, secure livelihoods, health, economic justice, energy and climate change. We have substantial experience and a strong reputation for working on resilience and secure livelihoods in remote locations, particularly with pastoral communities. We work in key areas underserved by other development organisations, particularly the South Omo and Borena Zones, where there are strong relationships with partners, communities and local authorities.

We have a good reputation for community-based interventions that are effective, sustainable and participatory and work with local partners to deliver programmes that bring about lasting change for vulnerable and marginalised people. We want our work to result in thriving, resilient and equitable communities where people, their assets and their livelihoods are resilient, and where previously disadvantaged individuals and communities feel increasingly able to influence decisions affecting their lives

We are currently updating this page and further information will be added soon.
