OUR LATEST NEWS
Partners in the Horn of Africa works in Ethiopia, the largest country in the “Horn of Africa”, focusing on the areas of greatest need. We work with communities in remote areas of Ethiopia, focusing our work in regions where others do not reach. Our projects respond to community requests, addressing needs for education, basic infrastructure, gender equality, food security, and sustainable livelihoods.
While most of our construction projects are now complete, Partners in the Horn of Africa will continue operating in Canada into 2018 so that we can support our group homes and allow the young women in residence to graduate from high school or complete their nursing or teacher training. We will also fund one more year of AEID’s OVC program and Bethel Group Home. Bethel provides crucial and loving care for 21 vulnerable children who were abandoned, often in the first hours or days of their lives, but found safety in this unique Home. We will keep you updated on our website, by email and Facebook. Donations to Partners are still welcome and will be put to good use.
All projects are proposed by our Ethiopian partner, who contribute at least 15% of the total project cost. 30% of community contribution for construction projects is allocated to our administration cost. Our Ethiopian partner plays an essential role in project design, decision-making, implementation, and monitoring.
100% of any donation to Partners goes directly toward project costs in Ethiopia. Administrative costs are covered by Friends of the Horn of Africa, a sister organization that is funded by our directors, a small group of individuals, and foundations.
We are a non-denominational, registered Canadian charity operating since 2001. We invite you to learn more about Partners and Ethiopia. With the help of our donors and partners, we are all making a difference in the Horn of Africa.
