Partners in the Horn of Africa
• 100% of all donations go directly to aid projects in Ethiopia. None of your donation goes to advertising (we don't do any), commissions (we don't pay any) or mailing, travel or administrative expenses (our Director's and private foundations pay these along with donating their time and expertise).
• Our African Partner (usually an Ethiopian charity or a village) is required to contribute 15 to 20% of project costs
• We focus our work in the more remote areas of the country that are often ignored by other NGO’s.

Some residents were skeptical, but not Ashete. The woman whose youthful smile belies her 45 years of diligently scratching out a living on a small patch of sun-baked ground was the first person in her community to ask for a BioSand Filter for her household.
“I was convinced after the demonstration,” Ashete said. “Previously we were often sick with typhoid and dysentery. Now that’s gone.”
