Ethiopia secures £24m UK grant to support refugees
Ethiopia has secured a £24 million grant from the United Kingdom to support refugees in two regions.
The grant agreement was signed by Admasu Nebebe, State Minister of Finance, and Dr Christian Rogg, Head of DFID in Ethiopia, at a virtual authorization ceremony.
The grant, for promoting refugee self-reliance, will be used for a project in Ethiopia’s Somali and Gambella Regional States, to improve quality of life and reduce the vulnerability of refugees, host communities and migrants and will directly benefit 200,000 refugees and host community members.
Ethiopia hosts almost a million refugees from neighbouring countries. From last year, a historic new refugee law allows refugees to obtain work permits, access primary education, obtain drivers’ licences, legally register births and opens up access to national financial services.
