Roots Ethiopia partners with communities in Ethiopia to turn local ideas into lasting change. We work together to improve schools, educate children, and enable livelihoods. These are community priorities, so they’re our priorities.


Improve schools.

Through our Learning Resource Projects, we work with rural schools to address the challenges they face including a lack of materials and not enough teacher training. We partner with the schools and work together to meet their needs and improve their school’s quality of education.

Educate children.

We provide School Sponsorships to poor students so that we can send more kids to school and give them the resources they need to not only stay in school, but to succeed in school.

We believe that when we pursue these goals together, we can increase financial stability for families and communities in Ethiopia.

Together, we will create lasting change.
