Hope, Compassion and Charity

for People in need in Lalibela, Ethiopia

"Hope for Ethiopia e.V." is acting directly for needies in absolutly hard and difficult living conditions. Focusing on Love, Hope, Care and Shelter. A privat project emereged out of this focus and initiated in April 2014. 

We provide personal sponsorships emphasising support of absolutly needy and helpless people living on the streets of Lalibela. The poorest of the poor, old people, orphans, streetkids, handicapped people - all of them get monthly support through our helpfull sponsors. Directly, person to person. Giving thanks to our sponsors until now more than a hundred poorest of the poor has been given monthly financial support in securing shelter and food.

Beside of providing sponsorships we act in charity for schools in need around Lalibela at Asheten Mountain Region. Thanks to the successfull Charity Campaign "Water for Asheten School" in 2016 the school got connected to water and it was possibel to build up a 7th and 8th grade there and teaching the kids.

February 2018 the campaign "Desks for Koyita School" was successfully completed. 150 desks and 5 blackboards giving the kids firsttime needfull and proper learning conditions. A real progress for the school after having been in existence for 15 years.

Hope for Ethiopia e.V. is a non profit organisation recognized by tax office and authorized to issue donation certificates. Through trust people and good friends working for us in Lalibela we are cooperating closely with administration and authorities on site. To support the existing local system of economy its compulsory giving out contracts to local craft companies and buying goods at regional distributors.


Donations are fully transparent and documented for everyone. Monthly financial support for our sponsorships goes directly 100% in it´s full from our NGO bank account to individual bank accounts of our needies.


Administrative costs were about 7,99% only last year, 2017. It´s about our team Geza & Eyayaw working for us on site and their financial remuneration. Visits of active members of "Hope for Ethiopia" are financed entirely on their own.
