Projects & Resources
Community members play an expanding role in the support of vulnerable children in Ethiopia. FHI 360’s coordination of care activities strengthen their ability to make linkages to service providers that bring shelter, food, education, economic support and health care to those most in need.
FHI 360 has promoted permaculture gardening in Ethiopia since 2012 and developed learning aids and a Permagarden Master Trainer manual to target the caregivers of highly vulnerable children.
This fact sheet introduces the Child Well-being Database Management System, which is a web-based platform housing data on the demands and provision of child-related services in every region of Ethiopia. The data — including child protection, health, education and disabilities, among others — will be accessible through the Ethiopian government website.
