Since 2005, Habitat Ireland’s partnership with Habitat Ethiopia has delivered significant impacts for vulnerable communities.


In the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, Habitat is the only global NGO working in the slums. Together, with Habitat Ethiopia, we have served more than 6,000 families through healthy homes, eco stoves and access to water and sanitation facilities.

Our partnership focuses on the painstaking, challenging work of upgrading slums to improve the lives of hundreds more families through water and sanitation; community toilets and eco kitchens as well as upgrading pathways and building retaining walls to prevent flooding.
