Dr. Ambachew Mekonnen Foundation aims to foster national development through open dialogue and peaceful conflict resolution, rejecting violence as a means of change.
Central to the foundation’s mission is the empowerment of Ethiopian youth and women, focusing on education and leadership development. Dr. Ambachew, a respected researcher with a PhD, played a pivotal role in crafting policies and capacity-building initiatives during his time. He provided leadership training to many aspiring leaders who shared his qualities.
Given that Ethiopia boasts one of the largest youth populations in Africa, with approximately 37.4 million individuals aged 10 to 24, the foundation places a strong emphasis on training and motivating the younger generation specially womens. Its goal is to ensure that Dr. Ambachew’s legacy lives on through the youth, inspiring them to contribute to the nation’s growth.
