Housing poverty in Ethiopia
- 77,295 people served in FY18
- 10 volunteers hosted in FY18
- Projects: construction, renovation, WaSH, slum rehabilitation
We run a diverse, innovative programme, tailored to meet the local housing need - from slum upgrades to improved water and sanitation facilities.
The vast majority of Ethiopians live in poorly built, dilapidated and cramped houses which lack even the basic facilities, such as toilets.
In the capital Addis Ababa, houses in slum areas are old and dilapidated and too narrow to accommodate families, where the health and dignity is compromised.
Most families who live in dilapidated homes in slum areas share toilets that are also in very poor condition. 24% of the households do not have any form of toilet facility and 63% use shared pit latrines. 25% of the solid waste generated from the city is left unattended. Poor families do not have toilets at all or use bad toilets that are nearly abandoned.Read more about housing poverty in Ethiopia
