Dejene and Donkey


A donkey that transformed a family's fortunes

Building resilient communities


With Ethiopia facing the danger of drought every year, we believe providing people with long-term, entrepreneurial ways to become resilient is the best way to support communities.

Dejene and his donkey, Bula, show just how extraordinary the impact can be, not just on livelihoods, but on education and health.

Small Steps, Big Change

"I used to be the poorest person in the village. In the past we were always short of food, because there wasn't enough money. I had no opportunities to help myself. Now we can make a difference to the whole community." - Dejene.

Watch to see how Bula has helped Dejene and his family change their lives.
