With more than 135 active grants and multiple teams, we aim to support the work of the foundation in various areas from our Ethiopia office by focusing on:
Ethiopia’s priorities: Aligned with Ethiopia’s own priorities, we aim to help the country improve agricultural productivity and increase the coverage of life-saving health and nutrition interventions.
Our vision to reduce poverty and help all Ethiopians live healthy and productive lives: Several important principles ground our vision: We co-create solutions with our partners, listen and respond to the needs of Ethiopian people receiving these services, take a catalytic approach, and respond to emerging needs and opportunities.
Strategic priorities within health and agriculture: For agriculture, we prioritize research, the “last-mile delivery” of services, and strengthening policy and institutions. For health, we support sustained, universal coverage of family health, expanding access to immunizations, and strengthening existing health systems. For both sectors, we focus on policy and advocacy to address systemic challenges and capture emerging opportunities.
