World Vision Ethiopia

In Ethiopia, World Vision works together and alongside governmental and non-governmental actors in an effort to improve the well-being of the most vulnerable children and their families to ensure all children have the opportunity to thrive.

World Vision Ethiopia began its first intervention in Ethiopia in 1971 with relief and opened the Ethiopia office in 1975. Relief, rehabilitation, and small community development projects dominated the decade that followed. During the 1984-85 drought, World Vision Ethiopia participated in a massive relief operation that saved the lives of millions of people.

Starting its operation with emergency intervention in some parts of Ethiopia, World Vision currently operates in 53 area programs, implementing projects in areas such as education; water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH); nutrition; emergency response; faith and development; food security; economic empowerment; climate change; and environmental projects.
