Because the problems in the remote areas of Ethiopia are closely interrelated, it seldom makes sense to tackle deficits in isolation from one another. For this reason we operate according to the principle of integrated sustainable development. Together with the local population we determine the measures necessary for sustainable development in five focal areas in selected project regions and link them together to form an overall strategy.
Food security through improved methods of cultivation and animal husbandry, together with terracing and afforestation measures to combat soil erosion.
Hand dug wells and spring developments to supply the population with clean drinking water, awareness-raising for better hygiene.
Construction of schools, provision of training facilities in vocational schools (TVETs) and literacy courses.
