In 2017, we noticed that not enough effort wasn't being put behind helping Ethiopian Americans deal with the challenges associated with adapting to American life. We decided to take on the task of organizing efforts to build up the Ethiopian American community's capacity to deal with these challenges.
Our mission is to assist Ethiopian American community members in becoming well assimilated and proactive members of the broader population by providing an apolitical platform for members of the local community to use in order to solve local observable problems. We pursue our mission by focusing on three facets of community work: building capacity in our community; education is practical subjects; and personal improvement.
We don't just invest in events and programs that improve people's lives directly. We invest in our community's ABILITY to respond to service demands in the most effective way possible.
We conduct workshops and other educational events that focused on practical knowledge.
Every single individual matters, and that means that the personal lives of those individuals matter. We do projects that focus on helping people in their personal lives.
