100% of your donation goes directly to our projects – not for admin or fundraising costs


100% of any donation to Partners goes directly toward project costs in Ethiopia. All administrative costs are covered by Friends of the Horn of Africa, a separately funded sister charity.

We work with an Ethiopian partner on each project, usually a community or local organization. Our partner proposes the project and is required to contribute at least 15% of the total cost in cash, labour, or materials.

These are the two principles upon which Partners in the Horn of Africa is based.

Operating since 2001, we are a non-denominational Canadian charity operating exclusively in Ethiopia, the largest country in the “Horn of Africa”. We work with both rural and urban communities, focusing our efforts and investments in areas of unmet need. Our projects respond to community requests, addressing a range of needs such as education, basic infrastructure, water and sanitation, food security, and sustainable livelihoods.
