About GOAL Ethiopia

GOAL Ethiopia is a foreign charity organization that has been working in Ethiopia for over 30 years, towards ensuring the poorest and most vulnerable in our world and those affected by humanitarian crises have access to the fundamental rights of life, including but not limited to adequate shelter, food, water and sanitation, healthcare and education.

GOAL implements a range of multi-sectoral development, resiliency, and humanitarian responses by being sensitive to cross-cutting issues like gender, accountability, child protection, HIV/AIDS, etc.

Currently, we work with street children, pastoralists and rural smallholders and respond to humanitarian crises in Ethiopia working closely with local communities, local government, donors and other key actors.
