For the benefit of the disadvantaged: Aid for self-development


According to a study by the UNO the world’s population can be expected to increase to 9.3 billion by 2050. In the poorest 48 countries the population will triple. But already today a typical Ethiopian family has six children. Especially people who live in poverty without any protection from the consequences of age, sickness or unemployment see children traditionally as a kind of "social insurance". Besides their mothers these are the main ones to suffer from the unfortunate circumstances in Ethiopia.

For this reason a major part of our activities is aimed at helping the socially disadvantaged. We place an emphasis on family planning methods adapted to the cultural situation, the betterment of women in society, day nurseries and care of orphans. The construction of girls’ homes and creation of educational and vocational training facilities are likewise essential parts of our project work and steps towards a more hopeful future.

Our successes to date:

– 2 children’s homes

– 4 student hostels

– 8 training centres

– 9 kindergartens
