A country of great opportunity

Ethiopia

Ethiopia's recent economic growth and strides in poverty reduction are remarkable. But there is much work yet to be done. It remains one of the poorest countries in the world. Most of the people live in the rural countryside and millions still live without the most basic services like clean water and health care. The progress to date and the commitment of the people create an opportunity to create amazing impact.
