“Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress in every society, and every family.”
EMF was established on November 9th, 2020, as an Ethiopian National NGO with a mission to provide support for higher education in Logistics and Supply Chain Management, as well as capacity building. This is primarily achieved through vocational level training in collaboration with both domestic and international partners. The objective of EMF is to develop self-sustaining educational programs at universities, expand career options for youth, and offer lifelong learning opportunities through education and training.
EMF is committed to improving the well-being of Ethiopians and creating lasting solutions, with a strong emphasis on local ownership to reduce reliance on foreign development organizations. Our track record demonstrates our ability to connect Ethiopian project partners with the international stakeholder community, as evidenced in our project with SAfA.
SAfA aims to make a meaningful contribution to improving African communities, particularly in rural and urban areas, by creating enhancing livelihood prospects for the rapidly growing young population. This contributes to reducing poverty, addressing challenges that lead youth to migrate, and aligning with the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations. Ethiopia was chosen by SAfA as its first project country, and the experiences and learnings gained will be utilized to further strengthen the approach for other African countries and inform key stakeholders. The project encompasses activities in three thematic components: agriculture (with a focus on coffee and employment), logistics and education, and health and family planning.
