What we do

EQUIP International is registered charity in Canada with a goal to rescue impoverished children in 3rd world nations. Equip is involved in a number of nations in providing superb facilities to alleviate systemic poverty and strengthen the family unit.

EQUIP International has been rescuing impoverished children in Ethiopia for over 8 years. In 2013 we established our first elementary school in Nekemte with 60 children. Our school has grown to over 200 children and has received the coveted “Award of Excellence” from the Minister of Education.

Our school deliberately reaches out to the most desperate and needy children of Ethiopia. Most children in our school come from households with income of less than $6. per month.

In the fall of 2015 we opened a new facility in the heart of Nekemte, with capacity for expansion to over 400 children.



Sponsor A Child

Secure a child’s future for only $25. per month.

Each child receives 2 meals a day, quality education from loving teachers, and a school uniform.

Please join us in rescuing these beautiful children from the sting of poverty and illiteracy.

Donate

Thanks to the generosity of our donors we have been able to provide superb facilities and excellent education to our children in Ethiopia. Some donors prefer to sponsor children and others like to donate for buildings, equipment, or real estate.

Every gift is vital.

The children we reach would not be educated without the generosity of our donors.

Visit

Some of our donors like to visit the our projects. You are welcome to visit our project, and we are happy to help you with travel details and escort you either in the spring or fall - when our directors visit. A typical trip takes about 10 days - we recommend a least one month preparation time (vaccinations, visas, etc.)

Thankyou


Crisis Response

Sometimes we are made aware of a crisis in Ethiopia. In the past we have purchased food on short notice to rescue a starving family, On several occasions we have provided medication, clothing, and mattresses to women and children in prison.
