Vision: green Ethiopia, with the people, for the people

Improve the nutrition and living situation of people in Ethiopia for sustainable fight of poverty through afforestation and water harvesting, in close collaboration with farmer and women associations.


This is the main objective of Foundation Green Ethiopia. But it is not about delivering aid, instead it is about support for self-development, starting with afforestation and ending with people being empowered to sustainably improve their living situation themselves.


Focal point is the cycle:


Trees - Forests - Water - Nutrition - Life



In close collaboration with beneficiaries, we want ....

... transform bare hills ...

... into fertile forests (Boreta-Gerado, Oromo).

... that girls no longer carry water ...

... instead donkeys take that burden.

... fields remain bare in the dry season ...

... instead vitamin-rich, healthy vegetables are produced (Weyenti, Tigray).
