some Ethiopian efforts in regard to persons with disabilities

Ethiopia is a country in which the Christian faith was established very early. Here is the website for the Ethiopian Orthodox Church (in English): http://www.ecdd-ethiopia.org/AboutECDD.aspx

The Church’s “Child and Family Affairs Organization” website addresses the situation of children with disabilities: http://www.eoc-cfao.org/about-ethiopia/the-situation-of-children/orphans-and-children-in-extremely-difficult-circumstances.html 

Here’s is this Ethiopian Orthodox organization’s webpage detailing their five main programs: http://www.eoc-cfao.org/programs.html 

Another effort by the Church: http://www.ethotc.org/dicac/eoc/ 

Also:

The Ethiopian Center for Disability and Development (ECDD) is a private, non-profit organization with 60 members and 32 paid staff, 15 fulltime and 17 part-time (24 of which have disabilities themselves), which seeks to promote inclusion of persons with disabilities in various programs, projects, and services in Ethiopia.  Here is their website:http://www.ecdd-ethiopia.org/Default.aspx

At the bottom of their “About ECDD” page http://www.ecdd-ethiopia.org/AboutECDD.aspx under “Program Activities” number 7 on the list is “Improving the employability of people with disabilities;” the International Orthodox Christian Charities  http://www.iocc.org/ is listed as a partner in this work.

The IOCC Ethiopia webpage elaborates on past and ongoing cooperative efforts in this country: http://www.iocc.org/countries/countries_ethiopia.aspx
