About us

Busajo Onlus was founded in 2009 to support social projects especially focusing on younger generations and on children education and training.

The Association has not a political faction and is not religious; it is independent, and has its own deontological code governing the fundraising activity. Busajo Onlus chooses aid projects with total freedom and independence of judgment.

The Association favors projects where children’s poverty is greater, the most urgent needs and actions allow a measurable progress in the self-sufficiency path of the involved populations. It focuses its interventions on non-assistance projects that aim to make the recipients autonomous and self-sufficient, especially by investing in their cultural, educational and professional growth.

Where we operate

Busajo Onlus focuses its activities in Ethiopia, in the Wolayta region, which has about 1.5 million inhabitants. According to the human development report, Ethiopia is one of the poorest countries in the world, it is ranked 157 out of 169 countries and the average age is 54. 

Our projects are developing in Soddo and in the surrounding rural areas. Soddo has about 100.000 inhabitants and and it is located 330 km south of Addis Ababa. The population lives thanks to sheep-farming, agriculture and commerce, but in the last few years the Ethiopian Government has invested in new infrastructures: roads, government offices and schools have been built in almost the whole rural area. The growth of the city attracts many young people from the countryside, increasing school attendance, but also begging phenomena, street children, delinquency and child prostitution. Our actions are aimed mainly at supporting street children and adolescents, in the belief that education and professional training are the only way to get out of a state of indigence and extreme poverty. We work so that, through a path of recovery initially health, then physical, psychological, then emotional and attitudinal, the new generations can grow and become self-sufficient and productive people for the whole country.

Our interventions are aimed precisely to street children and adolescents supporting, because we believe that education and professional training are the only way to get out of a state of indigence and extreme poverty. 

We work to ensure that, through an initial health physical, psychological, emotional and aptitude recovery path, new generations can grow and become self-sufficient and productive people throughout the country.

In Amharic, Busajo means “The one who sees ahead”
Our association believes that charity understood as almsgiving cannot solve the great problems of the African continent and that it is necessary above all to direct the economic resources to the cultural and professional education of the younger generations, helping to build a future with new prospects of self-sufficiency.
Why do we do it?
Because we believe that investing in the younger generations is the right way to pursue the indispensable self-sufficiency of a better quality of life.
Our staff, all Ethiopian, works and is committed with passion and professionalism so that street children and girls can regain confidence in their future to build a constantly growing social, cultural and economic network in their native country.
How do we do it?
In Italy, mainly in the Florence office, we are active in fundraising:
- We solicit donations from individuals and companies, and participate in calls for the selection by foundations.
- We organize two or three fund raising events annually.
- We avail ourselves of the support of the Giunti al Punto bookstore network, which with the sale of bookmarks constitutes a precious and widespread opportunity for promotion and collection of donations on the national territory.
We guarantee the donor transparency on the funds collected with the utmost confidentiality and respect for privacy.
In Ethiopia: The Italian country manager, the only expatriate member of staff, is in charge of managing the Busajo Campus project residing on site. The rest of the staff is entirely Ethiopian, qualified people who work with passion and commitment to the ordinary management and implementation of the project.

Currently, volunteer reception programs are not active yet.

Busajo Campus

The development of the city has greatly increased the number of street children and the phenomenon of child prostitution is getting extremely worrying.
The association has worked for years with street children, the activities are carried out in constant connection with the government authorities and this collaboration has created the need to respond to the growing phenomenon of street little girls who are often involved in the prostitution or used as a “servant” in families, without any right.
Busajo Campus is a project that mainly involves street children and little girls, but also reserves a space for the recovery and professional training of boys and girls over the age of 15, who due to age are not included in any other project for children in the country.
The proposal was greeted with enthusiasm by the local authorities who have given us their support and a land of about 30,000 square meters, where we have built Busajo Campus, in which 70 children reside.
