e3 Partners > Ethiopia

Positioned in the horn of Africa, Ethiopia is one of the continent’s oldest independent nations. It experiences both fertile, mountainous plateaus and drought-prone lowlands. It is most famously known as the birthplace of coffee.

After decades of suffering under communist rule, the Church has forged an unrelenting love for the Gospel and one another. This has laid the groundwork for a strong missionary presence. Still, over 20 million people have still never heard the Gospel.
