Ethiopiaid Canada is a charitable international development organization dedicated to empowering people in Ethiopia to live healthy and productive lives. We seek lasting change by supporting interventions driven by local partners. While Ethiopiaid Canada opened its doors in 2009, we are part of an international network of Ethiopiaid charities with offices in the United Kingdom, Ireland, and Australia. Together, we have over 27 years of experience in creating lasting change through collaboration with Ethiopian partner organizations.

​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.
