Ethiopia

Hotspot start date: July 2015

In Ethiopia, the Freedom Fund is investing in local groups in Addis Ababa and in the Amhara region 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 migrate in a safer manner and/or to develop economic alternatives to migration through livelihoods activities 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 through providing psychosocial and other services and are engaged in awareness raising activities of the hotspot.
