Ethiopia

In Ethiopia, the Freedom Fund is investing in local groups in Addis Ababa to support women and girls who are most likely to migrate to the Middle East for domestic work.

The Ethiopia hotspot program aims to develop the skills and knowledge needed to migration in a safer manner and/or to develop economic alternatives to migration through self help groups and vocational training.

Local community and spiritual leaders are active participants in the hotspot activities and are supported to take the lead in making migration safer in their communities. Returnees are also supported with their psychosocial and other needs and included in the other activities of the hotspot.

The 2015 impact report for the Ethiopia hotspot can be viewed here.
