Who are we?
Initiative Africa (IA) has been working with national and international partners across Ethiopia on various development, peace, and civic projects. In line with the priorities of the government, IA has increasingly been trying to use capacity development approaches that foster resilience in government and society – resilience to crises in livelihood, good governance, gender, and peace.
What We Do
To mobilize the business community to engage in peacebuilding and conflict resolution actions and activities.
Through corporate social responsibility to maintain support for effective peacebuilding and inclusive coordination amongst Government, private sector, media actors, and civil society.
To respond to concrete challenges and opportunities to build a peaceful and just Ethiopia through civic education, training, internship, and apprenticeship activities.
