Ripple Effect-Multiple Job Vacancy

About Organization

Ethiopia is Africa’s oldest independent nation and, with over 80 languages, our population is hugely diverse.

We are a populous country with a fast-growing economy, but we still have enormous development needs. Most Ethiopians live in highland areas, working smallholder farms. Climate, conflict and displacement mean that far too many families that used to be food secure now go hungry: 38% of our children are malnourished.

Sixty-five percent of households now have access to improved water sources, but only 6% have access to improved sanitation, so waterborne and communicable diseases are widespread.

However the resources of our young population and the land of our beautiful country present us with enormous potential.
