​Recognizing the empowerment of women and girls as central to reducing poverty and creating lasting change, Ethiopiaid Canada places emphasis on interventions that build the health, social, and economic assets of women and girls. Our programming focuses on increasing access to maternal health services, reducing barriers to education for vulnerable children, and supporting the empowerment of women and girls.

Sister to Sister: Kehit Lehit is a project that was launched to generate awareness and provide education about a variety of women’s issues in Ethiopia, mobilize the diaspora community in Canada, identify important issues related to women’s empowerment and to address ways to provide positive support through grassroots initiatives, including fundraising events, speaking engagements and networking. It seeks to facilitate an active and sustained engagement by the Ethiopian Diaspora in directly supporting women in Ethiopia and to share and promote Ethiopian culture and the role of Ethiopian women.

The Women’s Empowerment Brunch is Sister to Sister: Kehit Lehit’s first event, giving us the opportunity to introduce Sister to Sister: Kehit Lehit to the Ottawa community, and raise much needed funds to support women’s empowerment projects in Ethiopia.
