Travel with AJWS to


A unique way to see the world; where your presence will make a difference.

Join AJWS on an unforgettable journey to the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, a city of vivid local color and stark social contrasts. In a setting where glittering new skyscrapers share the streets with centuries-old marketplaces and overcrowded slums, we will visit AJWS grantees in Addis's activist community. They will share stories of their work to counter the ills of poverty and empower vulnerable populations—preventing the spread of HIV/AIDS and promoting education and human rights. This insiders' view of grassroots activism will reveal a rarely seen Ethiopia, one in which courageous local people are overcoming poverty at the community level, and building a more just, equitable society.
