About Us Deutsch

Ethiopian Enterprises is a non-profit organisation founded in 2010 by Lesley Stephenson, Thomas Baumann and Hans Möhr. We are committed to the sustainable end of poverty in Ethiopia. With the help of our members and donors, our association provides financial and educational support for selected projects which can help Ethiopians escape the cycle of poverty and lead lives of self-reliance. To this end, we also collaborate with similarly oriented organisations active in Ethiopia in the realisation of larger scale projects. All projects must contribute to the sustainable development of Ethiopian society and its economy.
