Using faith to transform lives in Ethiopia
Across Ethiopia, World Vision has improved the wellbeing of vulnerable children and women by tackling many of the toughest issues behind poverty and injustice. Staff have been able to discuss and address highly sensitive issues like gender equity and family planning with religious leaders from Ethiopia’s diverse faith communities.
Through specific faith-based projects, staff have been able to discuss and address highly sensitive topics like early marriage, gender discrimination and improving mother and child health. Thanks to highly trusted faith leaders and their communities engaging with us, the number of early marriages and child labour cases have reduced and increased numbers of children with disabilities have been able to attend school.
Meet Aberra and Ali, two religious leaders who engaged with World Vision through their faith, and consequently made changes in their family and wider communities to bring about brighter futures for all.
