We are an innovative, community healthcare organization committed to breaking the chain of generational poverty by serving the most vulnerable in communities of Addis Ababa.
We exist to help those living in poverty who suffer from diseases such as HIV/AIDS, cervical cancer, tuberculosis and other communicable diseases. We also work to bring reconciliation and wholeness, emotionally, spiritually and relationally.
Ethiopia ACT unique?
The Overlooked and Marginalized:
ACT cares for the very sickest and poorest people in the communities we serve. These are people overlooked by others because they are often invisible and difficult to find. Many are confined to bed without family to care for them or resources to fall back on. These are the people that others drive past, step over, or never even see.
Real, Measurable Impact:
We don't assume that our strategies make a difference. We collect data so that we can measure and track and adjust so that the transformation we desire is real and provable. We use metrics like mortality and morbidity, household income, and school performance. We are committed to high-impact interventions and are committed to constantly evaluating and improving our work.
Tailored to the Needs:
The support and care we provide is determined by the individual's needs and is never a one-size-fits-all approach. We see people as having infinite value, and that means doing our best with the available resources to meet their needs. The close relationship we build with each person makes it possible for us to tailor our activities to their needs and ensure there is real impact and change.
