Projects & Resources
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.
FHI 360 designed a set of better parenting resources for use in Ethiopia through the Yekokeb Berhan Program. FHI 360 created a guideline, training manuals and a flip-chart that uses pictorials to assure the messaging reaches its target.
