Work in Ethiopia


Please understand that we are unable to offer commissions in Ethiopia. We try to provide as many Ethiopians as possible with a job and currently have about 644 employees in our projects, of which only three are Europeans. The latter are deployed in specialist areas in which no qualified Ethiopians could be found.

Language barriers present a further hurdle: in addition to many dialects and the main language Amharinya, we also find the languages Orominya, Tigrinya and Afar in rural Ethiopia. Only a few Europeans are familiar with these languages and English is hardly spoken outside the capital Addis Ababa.

The working group “Learning and helping abroad” will enable you to contact a wide range of organizations which undertake such missions: www.entwicklungsdienst.de.

The Menschen für Menschen Foundation - Karlheinz Böhms Ethiopia Aid is a public foundation under civil law. It is registered with the Munich tax office under the tax number 143/235/72144 and was last exempted from corporation and trade tax by decision of 11th June 2018 for the promotion of tax-privileged purposes and thus recognised as a non-profit organisation.
