Ethiopia, the second country in Africa for number of inhabitants, is a young nation: about half of population has less than 18 years. About the 40% of Ethiopians live with less than one Euro in a day: poverty, lack of medical assistance and food have a great influence especially on children (it’s still high the mortality rate) and on young mothers.
Ciai has developed in Ethiopia projects which deal with actions in favor of healthy, nutrition , education and fight against child trafficking. Thanks to distance support, children and teens are supported during growth and education, in the city as in country; also the women work is promoted through the creation of cooperatives .
A successful project, whose results have been presented in many tournee in Europe, is that of Fekat Circus Club, a group of artists and street boys supported by CIAI . Today they can play shows and manage independently the cooperative .
