Project Definition

Beneficiaries of this activities

            The beneficiaries are vulnerable people who are need of spiritual, emotional, psychological  physical support via competent technical and material partnership at home and in Diaspora.

            The stake holders and beneficiaries are the people of Ethiopia and friends of Ethiopian people at home and in Diaspora who support self sustaining projects and institutions by providing technical assistance, human resource development, capital and managerial competency training by developing appropriate contacts with similar institutions here in the United States of America and other parts of the world.

Geographic area

            The geographic areas involved wherever Ethiopians and friends of Ethiopians live  at home in the Horn of Africa and in Diaspora who are internally and externally displaced around the world.  Besides Africa, Middle East and Europe, The United States is home to some one million Ethiopians scattered allover the 51 states including the Washington DC area.  The main focus will be to support Ethiopians in crisis at home in the Horn of Africa and in the Diaspora.

The Challenges and opportunities among the target community

            The target community are the people of Ethiopia who are internally and externally displaced due to the man made and environmental crisis that has been raging in the country since 1974 when the late Emperor Haile Sellassie and his two sets of cabinet were illegally disposed and massacred by the communist military junta.

            Since 1991, Ethiopia remains to be in transition as the new order is trying to cope with years of command economy led centralized government that disenfranchised the majority of the population who have in effect lost the spirit of free enterprise and sustainable development that once was the whole mark of these noble people of the covenant.

            The Emperor Haile Sellassie I Humanitarian Foundation is seeking  to revitalize the economy, the social fabric towards the Judeo-Christian values of thrift, inter-dependence and sustainable productivity that honors human beings as highest beings created in the image of God and as such who deserve the highest respect and partnership.  The People to People partnership we promote respects diversity of culture, faith and value systems. 

Background to current challenges

            Today, the people of Ethiopia both at home and in Diaspora are at cross roads where many of them have been displaced internally and externally.  More recently, the civil war in the north is claiming the most able and productive young males, while the women and children succumb to the scourges  of under nutrition, respiratory and gastro-intestinal infections as well as communicable diseases such as STD/HIV and malaria, whereas the  senior population are dying of tuberculosis and malaria reactivation accelerated by malnutritional immune suppression in their latter years.

            The current famine is raging in central and south eastern regions where one fifth the 60 million population are literally starving.  Experts of the region consider this the tip of the iceberg, and the reality is that almost every other person is not able to access nutritious diet to sustain a productive life.  The Ethiopian population is mainly children and youths under fifteen years of age with no productive adult males to support the family network.  The common theme of all the above diseases and famine is immune suppression and lack of infrastructure and trained manpower which depletes the populations energy resources and their vitality for productive life.

Concerns and difficulties that can be addressed

            The key concerns are human resource development, sustainable infra structure and emergency assistance from nutrition, medical care, sustainable micro enterprise, agribusiness from competent managerial training perspective.  All these problems need capital, manpower training and technological assistance, which the people desperately need.  The main concerns are lack of infrastructure and competent human manpower to deliver the goods and services to the most vulnerable communities.  The Ethiopian 2000 project has developed a series of competent people and organizations committed to provide transparent and accountable service.  Our motto is that we will be transparent and accountable for every second and cent invested in us and in our projects by setting up measurable results that are specific and effective to the changing needs of the target community.

            The Ethiopia 2000 project is committed to develop focused and accountable series or projects with defined objectives, goals and evaluation and monitoring protocols.  At present the Foundation has over 10 deserving applications.  The most critical ones include:
