Who we are?
Initiative Africa is a Non-Government organization of local citizens dedicated to promoting quality Education in Ethiopia and throughout Africa. It was established in 2002 to enhance access and improve the environment and quality of Education. Our work accomplishes this by promoting excellence in instruction, research, public service, and practice; exercising leadership; fostering the technological education of society; and providing quality products and services to stakeholders. Initiative Africa seeks to transform basic Education in collaboration with local governments, parents and the private sector.
Since 2005, Initiative Africa administered SIDA grants have had significant impact on strengthening the capacities of civil society organizations operating in Ethiopia in the areas of good governance. As of 2010 the organization has initiated changes in its grant making priorities and strategies by choosing to advance the objectives of the Education for All global campaign.
Over the years Initiative Africa has worked with 150 + local and
International partners in most regions of Ethiopia In pursuit of education
excellence. IA has and is developing policies and programs that enhance
professional opportunities for educators, and promotes activities that
support increased students performances and engagement in communities where
they live. Strong communication and collaboration with national and
international organizations further advances IA's mission.
