Primary Target

ANPPCAN Ethiopia takes a holistic approach to protecting the rights of children, and works with local partners to ensure that all children in Ethiopia are safe and healthy. Through its programming, ANPPCAN Ethiopia focuses on a range of issues that affect children, including those that are vulnerable to exploitation, abuse, and neglect. Specifically, ANPPCAN Ethiopia focuses on five key areas: protection of children in general, child victims of physical, psychological and sexual abuse and harmful acts, labor exploitation of children, trafficking of children, street children, migrant children, orphans and vulnerable children, children affected by health hazards of child rearing practices and HIV/AIDS, and children with disabilities.

Secondary Targets

Vulnerable women
We recognize that female headed households and low income earners can be particularly vulnerable and in need of help, which is why we are dedicated to providing them with the assistance they need. Our programs are designed to provide help to female headed households and low income earners, helping them to become self-reliant. We understand that these households and individuals often face unique challenges, and our goal is to provide them with the necessary resources to help them gain financial security and build strong and independent lives.

ANPPCAN Ethiopia provides resources, guidance, and support to help parents become more involved and engaged in their children’s education, and for the youth, ANPPCAN Ethiopia offers a wide range of services and resources to help young people reach their potential. We recognize that youth need access to quality education and meaningful opportunities for personal growth and development, Regarding CBOs Kebele/Farmers' associations, ANPPCAN Ethiopia provides resources and guidance for the development of effective strategies and initiatives for economic and social development. We believe that these organizations should have access to resources and opportunities to ensure that their communities are equipped to address the challenges they face. We work with these organizations to create, implement, and evaluate initiatives that promote economic and social development and to ensure that their communities are strong and supportive of their citizens.

Programmatic Issues


Lobby and Child Right Advocacy

ANPPCAN-Ethiopia undertakes lobby and child rights advocacy efforts at local, national, regional, and international levels to improve the situation for children all across Ethiopia. This strategy enables children to access information and services, get involved in decision-making processes, defend and protect their rights, and also speak out about issues that matter to them.

Child Protection

Child protection refer to preventing and responding to violence, exploitation and abuse against children – including online/commercial sexual exploitation, child trafficking, child labour and harmful traditional practices, such as female genital mutilation/cutting and child marriage. Child protection programs also target children who are uniquely vulnerable to these abuses, such as when living without parental care, children with special needs and in conflict with the law. Therefore, child protection is one of the key programmatic intervention areas of the organization in this strategic period.
