Energy Globe World Award 2015 in the category Earth and Overal Winner



Great honor for Foundation Green Ethiopia! During the celebration of the Energy Globe World Awards 2015 on January 19, 2016, Foundation Green Ethiopia received two honorable awards. We not only won the 2015 award in the category earth, we also won the overall Energy Global Word Award 2015 (together with an Iranian project). More than 2000 projects from 177 were registered for the award.

 

This award from the renown Austrian environmental organization Energy Globe Foundation Ltd. is a great honor and underlines that our afforestation and impacts for "Trees – Forests – Water – Nutrition – Life" are the right approach to continuously follow in the future. The award motivates and energizes project members for further efforts and striving to change more lives of subsistence farmers in rural Ethiopia. The foundation is happy for the ongoing and endless support of beneficiary farmers, various experts and agencies, and also numerous donors in Switzerland which support our ideas and activities. All of them deserve a share of this award.

Trees of hope



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.

 

The objective of the foundation is to fight erosion and its dramatic consequences through afforestation, and supporting the Ethiopian agriculture and forestry for re-gaining food security.
