The need in Ethiopia:

  • 90 percent of homes are in need of repair in urban areas

  • 70 percent of people do not have access to piped water

  • 80 percent of Addis Ababa is comprised of slums

In the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, Habitat is the only global NGO working in the slums.

 Since 2005, Habitat NI’s partnership with Habitat Ethiopia has delivered significant impacts for vulnerable communities. Together, with Habitat Ethiopia, we serve families through healthy homes, eco stoves and access to water and sanitation facilities.

Currently, support from Northern Ireland focused on a vulnerable group housing and WASH project in Kombolcha which will transform the future for 8 families through new homes, access to water and sanitation, together with training and other supports.
