Civil Connections Community Foundation is an international non-governmental organisation based in Copenhagen – Denmark. CCCF aims to increase value and achievement in international development initiatives with local grassroots communities. Civil Connections Community Foundation's mission is to support local grassroots development actors to achieve their aims of facilitating community development for a fair and sustainable world.

CCCF has substantial experience in civil society capacity building and has projects in several countries. Engaging in Ethiopia provides a new opportunity for CCCF. This setup presents collaborative advantages for both Early Care International and CCCF in complying with development and joint resource mobilisation to support activities and partners in Ethiopia. Additionally, CCCF and Early Care International share a common interest in developing the welfare of marginalised communities, specifically young people's rights and development.

Early Care International is working closely with our local partner organisation in Ethiopia, Education for Sustainable Development (ESD). ESD is a non-profit, non-religious and non-political civil society organisation aiming to improve the lives of children, youth and women in Ethiopia. 


ESD envisions seeing a country where children, youth and women are economically, socially and culturally empowered to overcome the vicious circle of poverty and lead a dignified life. The organisation's mission is to create a brighter future for disadvantaged and marginalised children, youth, women and communities through education, livelihood and entrepreneurship in partnership with stakeholders.

ESD was established in November 2007 and registered by the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia Charities and Societies Agency per the CSO proclamation No, 621/2009 bearing the registration number 0259. It has a presence in 16 districts throughout the country.


Currently, Early Care International and ESD are implementing a small-scale intervention project, where we aim to map out and create a platform for Early Childhood Development partners in Ethiopia. The project we are implementing will enhance collaboration, create access to knowledge, and minimise duplication among the various actors in this field.

The Children and War Foundation (CAW) is a Norwegian-based non-profit organization dedicated to improving children’s lives after wars and disasters.


When disasters and war strike, many children are affected. Through evaluating tools CAW works to reduce traumatic symptoms in children after wars and disasters.


CAW was established based on a need for simple screening measures and evidence-based interventions for traumatised children after war and natural disasters. Over the years CAW has developed methods and interventions which enable them to identify large groups of children affected by wars and disasters, and help them cope with their fear and trauma following a traumatic event. Since 2000, the Foundation has developed several screening measures, manuals, trained more than 400 intervenors and supported research projects that evaluate their treatment tools. 

Projects with the Children and War Foundation

Together with Children and War Foundation we are implementing the pilot project, "Training of non-specialised front line workers in war-affected areas" in Ethiopia.
