Access Roads

“Development can only arrive where a road leads.”

The rural regions of Ethiopia are poorly developed and the people are literally cut off from the outside world. Together with the population, we are therefore constructing access roads and building bridges to improve access to markets, schools, and medical care.

Help pave the way to a better future for families.

Accompany people from our project regions as they go about their daily lives.

The lack of a road not only makes it difficult to go to school or to the market. Again and again, people die, especially pregnant women, because they cannot get to the distant hospital fast enough.

Way(s) to development

Without a road, it is almost impossible to carry out important projects such as building schools or health clinics in areas cut off from the outside world. That is why, with the active participation of the population, we build access road to make development possible in the first place.

Creating connection(s)

People in remote villages often have to travel kilometers to reach markets, secondary schools or hospitals. Their routes sometimes lead them over dangerous climbing paths, where people often fall and are seriously injured. Together with the local population, we build stable steps that enable women, men, and children to walk a shorter and above all safer distance. The photo shows the example of the Gara Gatama steps. About 290 steps connect the low-lying regions of Ginde Beret with the capital, Kachisi, about 400 meters higher. This makes daily life much easier for the people in the valley.

What we have achieved:
