Organisation
The ‘Brothers of Good Works Projects, Ethiopia’ (BGW-projects Ethiopia) were founded by the Congregation of the Brothers of Our Lady of Lourdes (Belgium). The projects are non-governmental and work under the umbrella of the Ethiopian Catholic Church. All programs from BGW-projects Ethiopia are aimed at improving the living conditions of the most vulnerable residents of Addis Ababa. BGW-projects Ethiopia is firmly anchored in the community and works in close partnerships with local authorities, ‘Women & Youth Affairs’, hospitals, schools and local and international partner organizations. In cooperation with these partners and the local population, sustainable development and growth towards a better life can be supported where it is needed. All projects of BGW-projects Ethiopia are carried out and supervised by well-trained and professional local staff. BGW-projects Ethiopia in Addis Ababa strives to establish a dignified life for under-educated people, people living with HIV, families with children who have disabilities, and (homeless) elderly people. We support these groups to develop a self-sufficient existence. We do this through education and training, which encourages participants are to develop their own strengths and talents. To make this possible, we provide basic services such as affordable healthcare and housing that provides them with a dignified existence. Stigmatization and discrimination complicate the integration of people living with HIV and people with a disability. We work at increasing knowledge and understanding to achieve a change in society as a whole, in order to allow everyone to participate in their own way. We do this by providing information about HIV and disabilities in neighborhoods, schools and factories. To this end we use existing Ethiopian social traditions and structures, such as coffee ceremonies
“Treat others as you want to be treated” is the guideline for our work.
