To empower the most disadvantaged communities in Ethiopia and neighbouring countries to end child poverty
Tesfa Hope Campaign
Tesfa means Hope in Amharic.
Partners for Change is working with JeCCDO Ethiopia to change the lives of children and their families change.
We work across Ethiopia in over 40 communities, supporting local people in fulfilling their dreams and hopes.
We have set up many new and innovative projects.
We visited the projects areas in 2022
Watch this film to show how two projects, one at Lake Hawassa in the Rift Valley of Ethiopia and the other in south Yorkshire in the UK share the same concern for our environment.
Our school links have supported schools in Ethiopia, especially by increasing access to education for the poorest children - and this gives great opportunities to learn for the UK.
As well as discovering what life is like in a very different society, learning about Ethiopia helps children discover the country where we all originated from, the country with the longest archeological history and with the most mountains of ant country in Africa.
Working with schools
HOW WE WORK
Our approach is based on a simple principle.
Members of the poor communities themselves are the people with the insights, determination, perseverance – and responsibility – to care for their own children and to improve their own situations.
We believe that children should be cared for in their own community
Our projects are planned, managed and staffed by local people
We respond to all the needs of children within their community
