Plan in Ethiopia
Since 1995 Plan has worked in Ethiopia and is active in the slums around the capital Addis Ababa and in the north situated Lalibela. Since 2003 Plan has also worked in Shebedino a district in the neighborhood of the city Awasa.
Although Plan is not a relief organisation, in the face of looming famine they have naturally been working with local partners and other international NGOs to respond to immediate needs in the communities where they are working, as well as implementing regular, more sustainable programs. They are also focusing on promoting various farming techniques, including soil and water conservation.
