Who We Are

at our core


Who is Ethiopia ACT?

We are a gospel-centered, multi-cultural team actively loving the “least of these" of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. We work to reconcile people to God through Jesus Christ, and to reconcile them to themselves, others and creation—all resulting in the planting, growing and maturing of churches that in turn transform lives and communities through faithful witnesses to the Gospel.

Why we exist

Ethiopia ACT began as a ministry to reduce the impact of HIV/AIDS on extremely poor families, but has grown to include other public health strategies that serve the wider community, as well as educational and psychological support for vulnerable children.  Church planting and renewal is central to all our activities and a primary goal for our team.


Core Values



ACT seeks out and serves the poorest, sickest, and most marginalized residents of Addis Ababa.



ACT seeks to impact the health of the community through innovative and effective public health strategies, with an emphasis on HIV.



ACT works to bring healing and wholeness to individuals, families, and communities by reconciling people to themselves, others, creation, and God.


We respond generously because of God’s generosity to us through the Gospel.


All our activities are high impact and measurable.


We treat the people we serve with the kind of love and respect we want. We don’t exploit them or portray them as helpless victims needing rescue.

Meet the team

on the ground

We have an amazing team of local staff who work tirelessly for the project, visiting each and every one of our beneficiary families ensuring every person we come in contact with is treated with the respect of someone created in God's image.

Meet the people who make it all possible.
