WIDU launched in Ethiopia in August 2021. This now gives Ethiopian entrepreneurs the opportunity to benefit from the WIDU Grant as well as from professional business coaching through R&D Group and Reach for Change.

WIDU ለመጀመሪያ ጊዜ በኢትዮጵያ የተጀመረው በነሀሴ ወር 2013 ነው። ይሄ ፕሮጀክት ኢትዮጵያ ውስጥ ስራ ፈጠራ ላይ ለተሰማሩ ስራ ፈጣሪዎች የስልጠና ድጋፍ R&D እና Reach for Ethiopia በመሳሰሉ ብቁ አሰልጣኞች የመሰልጠን እድል እንዲሁም WIDU ስጦታን በተጨማሪነት ይዞ መቷል።

A yearly estimated USD 5-6 billion in remittances to Ethiopia suggests large potential impacts on employment and overall development the Ethiopian diaspora has in their country of origin.

በአመት ውስጥ 5-6 ቢልየን ዶላር የኢትዮጵያ ዳያስፖራ ለቤተሰብ, ዘመድ ገንዘብ ይልካል፤ ይህም ኢትዮጵያ ውስጥ ስራ ለመፍጠር እንዲሁም የኢትዮጵያ ዳያስፖራ በሀገሩ ኢንቨስትመንት ላይ አውራ ትሳታፊ ለመሆን ያስችለዋል።

WIDU Ethiopia aims to tap into this potential by leveraging diaspora transfers that feed into existing and newly created micro and small enterprises in any sector.

WIDU ኢትዮጵያ ዋነኛ አላማ የኢትዮጵያ ዳያስፖራ ገንዘብ ዝውውር እንደመነሻ በመውሰድ ወደ የሚያድግ እና አዳዲስ አነስትኛና ጥቃቅን ንግድ ዘርፍ ላይ ማዋል ነው።

ፎርሙ በእንግሊዝኛ ብቻ ነው መሞላት ያለበት!
