In Ethiopia, refugees face a range of barriers that prevent them from accessing employment or starting a business. Our local partner, The Ethiopian Orthodox Church Development and Inter-Church Aid Commission, provides a range of complimentary services to help refugees address these barriers. They support refugees to get work permits and provide cash grants so they have everything they need to start their own businesses.
For those who have been uprooted from their homes and communities, this Gift for Peace is an opportunity to rebuild their lives, regain independence, and create a brighter future for themselves and their family.
