Ethiopia overview


Despite much progress, Ethiopia remains one of Africa’s poorest nations with a third of the population living below the poverty line.

Increasing farm production, supporting new enterprise and developing market opportunities for farmers is at the core of Self Help Africa’s work in Ethiopia.

Current projects in the country also focus on strengthening community-based seed production, improving the resilience of local agricultural communities to changing climate, and on improving productivity and livestock value chains.

Last year, the organization was involved in implementing close
to a dozen development projects, all of which are being undertaken in collaboration with local and/or international partners.
