People to People

People to People (P2P) is a non-governmental, non-profit organization dedicated to improving health care and reducing the spread of diseases, particularly in Ethiopia and in diaspora communities. P2P has no political, ethnic, or religious affiliation. P2P works to mobilize the global Ethiopian diaspora to play an active role in mitigating the impact of brain drain and to ignite a passion for realizing our shared responsibility to give back. Equipped with innovative ideas, valuable transnational networks, knowledge & expertise, strong values, and new technological skills, our network stands ready to take on many of the challenges facing communities and institutions in Ethiopia and elsewhere. P2P’s projects are focused on strengthening health systems through partnerships with local hospitals and universities, in which we engage the global Ethiopian diaspora in an attempt to bridge the knowledge gap and address the country’s severe shortage of health and medical professionals. P2P is also engaged in a number of service-oriented projects, working in particular with vulnerable communities, such as children orphaned by HIV/AIDS, the elderly, the deaf community, women, and more, devoting our time and effort to their overall health and empowerment. Founded in 1999 and recognized as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization in the United States (federal tax ID#61-1346918), P2P is an international network of organizations, with headquarters in the US and an office in Ethiopia that serves
