Ethiopia is one of the fastest growing economies of the world, with annual growth of 10% on average for the last 11 consecutive years. The current population is estimated at over 100 million; more than half of whom are youth.

Despite the current economic advances, recurrent drought with erratic annual rainfall, traditional ways of farming and unstable political and economic conditions remain a challenge for many families. Still today, nearly 36 million children in Ethiopia are poor and lack access to basic social services.

In Ethiopia, World Vision works together and alongside the governmental and non-governmental actors in an effort to improve the well-being of the most vulnerable children and their families to ensure all children have the opportunity to thrive.
