About Ethiopiaid Australia

We're an Australian-based charity, raising money for healthcare and education on the ground in Ethiopia. We believe that truly sustainable change should be local, not imported. That’s why we partner up with local, community-based organisations all across Ethiopia - organisations like Valerie Browning's Afar Pastoralist Development Association (APDA) - who know what it takes to help their people and their region. Proceeds raised from Valerie's book go back into this work in Ethiopia.
