Projects in Ethiopia

SITUATED IN NORTH EAST AFRICA, ETHIOPIA IS ONE OF THE WORLD’S POOREST COUNTRIES. APPROXIMATELY ONE HUNDRED MILLION PEOPLE LIVE HERE, THIRTY PERCENT OF WHOM LIVE IN CONDITIONS OF EXTREME POVERTY.

Ethiopia, a land with a thousand year history, but all too often devastated by poverty and illness which make the conditions of life dramatic and borderline for its people. There are about 30 million people, many of them women and children, who find themselves in extremely trying circumstances. The prospects of leading a normal life are severely reduced for many millions of people and the infantile mortality rate is frightening in proportion. The inability to read and write is another factor which literally affects many of the population. 

Recently, we have had the chance to get to know Busajo, a not for profit organisation from Florence which has operated in Ethiopia, in the area of Soddo, south of Addis Abeba, since 2009. Through meetings with the organisation’s staff an initiative has come about whereby we will dedicate a part of our efforts in support of their projects. The task we set ourselves is a challenging one and is based on set objectives: to distance youth from street life, from the risk of falling victim to kidnapping and micro-crime, from prostitution of minors, and from the abandonment of school life. We hope to give them a better future.
