ilanga is happy to have found a partner with the foundation Confidence for Children, with which a center for children can be opened in Ethiopia.
In this center the foundation is offering a nursery for the single mums, where they can leave their children while they are working. The mothers can also attend the trainings from ilanga in the center. The children are taken care of during the day by the foundation. They are served a warm meal and get help for their homework.
Women and children are often on the lowest ranking of the social ladder, therefore ilanga has decided to support single mothers and their children in Addis Ababa. These single women can start their own business with little help and create a sustainable life for their children and themselves. This gives children the opportunity to develop and go to school.
These women receive help through psycho-emotional
support and training by our team. Their independence and "ownership" for their actions strengthen their self-esteem so that they are able to solve problems by themselves.
Since the start of the armed conflict in northern Ethiopia in November 2020, more than 3,000 health facilities have been destroyed. Medicines, medical supplies and medical equipment have been destroyed and ransacked. This has resulted in up to 5 million people suffering from inadequate or no medical care, especially children and women.
The Ethiopian Ministry of Health is asking all Ethiopians, companies, donor organizations, professional associations, and civil society for support: Together, the health facilities are to be rehabilitated. With this sub-project ilanga would like to support the Ethiopian Ministry of Health in this.
Therefore, we coordinate the help and collect medical material.
Other local projects, initiatives and organizations that work with children, adolescents and women deserve the help of ilanga.
During the trips that ilanga organizes, the groups visit sustainable projects, local initiatives, schools, orphanages and hospitals. This ensures that ilanga makes a further contribution to these institutions and the people in Ethiopia. With the trips your donations support ilanga directly with five percent of the travel expenses.
