Impact

Engera operates or helps to run seven medical clinics delivering assistance to upwards of 130,000 people with no other access to healthcare – 35% of this population are children. Most families live on several hundred dollars per year. 

In 2021, the staff of four Engera clinics (Zizencho, Shebraber, Burat and Galeya-Rogda) visited 77,635 patients, safely delivered 1071 babies and provided 1168 vaccinations. In addition, Engera provided funding for training and support to the clinics in Maganesse, Getche and Dakuna, which served 42,783 people. 

Our Vision is for a healthy community in the Gurage region and access to quality healthcare for whoever needs it. Central to achieving this is building the capacity of new health workers and upgrading existing skills to ensure sustainable change.

Scholarships funded by Engera have unlocked the potential of several members of the local community who are now an integral part of the healthcare team.

Senait is 24 years old. Through funding from Engera, she trained as a midwife eight years ago at the Hossana Health Science College. At the time, there were no midwives, and she did not have medical experience, but she wanted to learn more about midwifery. Senait is now the most experienced midwife out of the nearest nine clinics. She plans to continue her professional development and further her skills. 

Dawit is  23 years old and has worked at the Zizencho health centre for five years. He is an only child and therefore the sole provider for his family and comes from a very disadvantaged background. Previously he was working in the field for a daily wage. However, with funding from Engera, he has finished a three-year diploma at the Hossana Health Science College. He now has a permanent position as a laboratory technician. Now he has a secure job and stability; he wants to do a degree to increase his salary.
