Projects Supported


 

Amhara

In the past Haber has funded a school in Minzero, a health centre in Robit and in the near future will be funding a second school in Minzero.

Tigray (specifically AdiKeyh)

Haber has funded microfinance projects and is supporting critical capital works in the AdiKeyh region on an ongoing basis.  In the remote villages of AdiKeyh, the need is profound. The community struggles with extreme poverty – lacking the basics of clean water, health care and education.

Education is one of the most pressing needs for the families and children of AdiKeyh. Children who attend school go to makeshift schools under trees or overcrowded classrooms with stick walls and dirt floors.

The work in AdiKeyh is extensive, focusing on the construction or refurbishment of schools, the provision of clean water and latrines at each school and the construction of a deep borehole to provide clean water to the entire community.

There is more information below about all of these specific projects supported by Haber.

Supporting the 2016 drought


In January 2016, a severe drought devastating Ethiopia was at a critical point. More than 400,000 children were severely malnourished and 10 million people were in urgent need of food. The Ethiopian government  immediately responded to the drought with nearly $200 million. While the remarkable progress across Ethiopia in recent years provided a strong foundation for the country to recover, there was more to be done to protect the hardest hit communities where people were suffering most and lives were at stake.

Haber responded by donating a significant gift to its partner, A Glimmer of Hope, in order to support the emergency aid effort.  Haber’s gift was specifically used to provide life-sustaining grain through a program at local schools. With this basic food supply, children continued their education and families were supported.

The episode was an unwelcome reminder of the country’s vulnerability, and the importance of investing in Ethiopia’s infrastructure, in order to further improve resilience against future environmental threats.
