Partners With Ethiopia believes the best way to fight poverty in Ethiopia is to support local run NGO (non-profit) organizations. We have been working in this capacity since 2010 and have seen firsthand that our partners know best the needs and solutions to help empower individuals, families, and communities impacted by poverty. Help us support our partners by making a donation today. Throughout the year we do a variety of fundraisers to support specific projects.
