ORDA Ethiopia at a Glance

ORDA Ethiopia was established as Ethiopian Relief Organization (ERO) in February 1984.

ORDA Ethiopia is an Ethiopian-operated, Non-Governmental Organization (non-profit) that focuses primarily on forest, environment, agriculture, nutrition, water and irrigation development programs as a key step in the strategy to end chronic poverty and food shortages in Ethiopia. The organizationhas devised strategies and programs that benefit nearly 4.5 million people.
