Engera is a non-profit organisation founded by – and made up of – doctors, nurses and volunteers who promote healthcare and education in Ethiopia.

How we operate

Engera has been operating for years in the Gurage region of Ethiopia. On top of direct intervention and training of local staff, Engera manages and supports 7 health facilities with the aim of offering healthcare assistance to a population of over 200,000 people.

These are the 4 pillars of our Activies:

Healthcare

Maternal and child health is our core focus, but our work extends far beyond those areas. Engera supports the local Ethiopian staff across various rural health structures, providing the only reliable healthcare in the remote areas we operate.

Training

We invest in long-term sustainability through the training of nurses, midwives and other professional figures during Engera mission, and by subsidizing continued training for local staff.

Education

The health and well-being of an individual depend on many factors that go well beyond the health sector in the strict sense. For such a young population, school plays a fundamental role. Engera invests in numerous educational projects aimed at the growth of young people in the villages where we operate.

Development

We work to restore and expand the health facilities that already exist in the villages of this region, and we invest in new facilities that support better healthcare, for the construction of wells for the supply of clean water.
