Many ways to give back

Tailormade to your interest and strength, every program connects you with volunteer and work opportunities in Ethiopia. Short- or long-term. Remote or in-person. This is your opportunity to give back to a country you love.

The process

We Talk

The first order of business is to learn about you. We review your resume and schedule an initial phone call, where we try to understand your background and the kind of project you want to work on.

We Design

Based on your professional experience, preference, and availability, we draft a few ideas you can engage in.

You Choose

After you choose your project, we craft the details of the program — and we’ll be there to track and monitor the program, while telling your story and experience.
