LUCIA (Life Uplifted by Change In Africa)

LUCIA is a small volunteer-run charity whose goal is to improve the lives of women and children in Ethiopia through local projects encouraging long term growth and development.

Founded 2004

  • Mission statement

    LUCIA focuses on projects that will make lasting improvements. We primarily work with women and street children in Ethiopia. We help to provide the women, both as individuals and as community groups, with the support they need to begin generating their own incomes. This improves their lives and that of their families. They become motivated and less reliant on international aid. We support the street children with education, shelter and health care. We occasionally use a small amount of funds for emergency relief work, as we recognise that some communities will need this in order to reach the sustainable development phase.

  • Aims

    LUCIA (Life Uplifted by Change In Africa) aims to:

    • LUCIA aims to empower women economically, socially and politically through funding women's Self Help Groups. Participating in these gives them support, education and empowerment.
