1 – Poor state of Education Service
Access, equity and quality of education remains major problem. Specially, primary education suffers from lack of resources and internal school facilities; all preventing the smooth functioning of service delivery. Improving the education system remains a top priority for the economic and social well-being of the country’s ever increasing population of 90 million.
Enhancing the Learning and Teaching Environment is our approach to tackling the problem. We feel that Education serves as a tool for transformation.
2 – Underdeveloped Health Care Service
Ethiopia has still some of the lowest health indicators in the world. Official reports indicate that there is shortage of health professionals to care for the country’s nearly 90 million people.
Improving Access to Quality Primary Health Care Service is essential factor in promoting the general physical and mental health and well-being of people.
3 – Shortage of Water
Water is essential for human life. Ethiopia’s rural water supply and sanitation coverage is among the lowest in the world. Millions have no access to safe water and sanitation facilities. Citizens face a range of challenges related to water shortage.
Enabling Access to Safe Water source, an improved hygiene and a sustainable sanitation is what we aim to save lives and transform communities.
4 – Subsistence-based Agricultural Economy
Despite agriculture is the backbone of the economy, and a means of livelihood for the population, it remains underdeveloped. It employs ancient farming methods, inefficient techniques, and has minimal productivity.
Increasing Agricultural Productivity plays a key role in increasing food security, and reducing hunger and poverty. We believe that availability, access and consumption of nutritious food is necessary for an active and healthy life.
Creating Income Generating Activities that help individuals to secure income, support mechanisms such as credit schemes, provisioning of saving methods and cooperative undertakings that strengthen household’s economy are important.
5 – Gender Inequality and Social Injustice
In Ethiopian society, cultural stereotypes are ingrained in both men and women. This plays as a major factor in creating gender inequality, wage disparity, preferential treatment and violence against women.
Empowering Rural Women is a key to the well-being of families. It is vital for achieving economic transformation, and to bring social and environmental changes that are necessary for sustainable development.
6- Under-developed Rural Infrastructure
In Ethiopian society, social services and infrastructure are severely underdeveloped. Supply of electricity, water and telephone, financial, trade and transport services are still underdeveloped and limited to few town centers.
Improving Rural Infrastructure enables economic growth, and serves as the bedrock for better life. It is key driving force behind societal and economic development, and enhances peoples general living conditions.
