Croeso / Welcome to Gobaith i Ethiopia - Hope for Ethiopia

"Linking the communities of Wrexham, North Wales and Mekele, Ethiopia"

Gobaith i Ethiopia - Hope for Ethiopia is a charity dedicated to supporting projects in Ethiopia and Sub-Saharan Africa principally, but not exclusively, in the field of education and to increasing mutual awareness and understanding and creating positive links between people of different cultures, especially young people, in the UK and more specifically Wales, and those in Ethiopia.

Our Vision

Gobaith i Ethiopia - Hope for Ethiopia has a vision of an equal and just world where people no longer have to live in poverty and where social injustices are eradicated, where basic human rights and an acceptable quality of life are assured. In a modern world in which technology draws us ever closer, we have a responsibility to the common good and are all responsible, not only for ourselves, but also for the wellbeing of all.

Education is vital in providing children who live in difficult circumstances with the opportunity to achieve their full potential and play a part in providing for the future, not only of themselves but also their fellow citizens and to contribute to the wider world as global citizens.

Our mission

Our two main aims are:

  • To help in the provision of quality education for children aged 4-18 in Ethiopia and Sub Saharan Africa, with the broader aim of empowering people to lift themselves and their communities out of poverty.
  • To enable the establishment of links and interaction between people of different cultures, particularly the young people of UK, especially Wales, and the people of Ethiopia and Sub Saharan Africa so as to raise awareness of our similarities, shared goals and global interdependence.
