All We Can has been working with ADENHO, one of our partners in Ethiopia since 2012. Over that time, we have found a range of ways to work together, in collaboration, in order to inspire and bring about change amongst some of the poorest communities in parts of Ethiopia.
Isayias explains that their work is focused on 3 areas:

- Environmental protection – planting and providing indigenous trees to help combat climate change and soil degradation;
- Education – supporting the local schools with their buildings and the materials they need to provide an education for the next generation.
