Roots Ethiopia works 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 School Improvement Projects, we work with rural schools to address the challenges they face including a lack of materials, not enough teacher training, and a lack of hands-on spaces for children to learn. We work with the schools and work together to meet their needs and improve their school’s quality of education.

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.
