Team in Ethiopia

Our team in Ethiopia

Project coordination office

Menschen für Menschen supervises all its project areas from its Project Coordination Office (PCO) in Addis Ababa. A total of 59 employees work here. The coordination office is also the logistics transhipment point for all materials needed in the project regions. The office and logistics centre is thus the pivotal point of our work in Ethiopia. The employees are in constant contact with the Munich office.

Our project managers

Our employees promote real development cooperation on an equal footing. Our development advisors live and work in the villages of the region. They are thus intimately familiar with the challenges presented by life in the rural regions and are always ready to offer assistance and advice to the local people in implementing the measures. In Ethiopia Menschen für Menschen employs a total workforce of 732, of which only five are not Ethiopian nationals. The direct work with the people, mutual trust and understanding are the cornerstones of our aid for self-development.
