About us

Busajo NGO ETS, founded in 2009, is a non-religious organization and does not have a political faction, it is independent, and has its own deontological and ethical code governing all activities and initiatives.

It concentrates its interventions in non-welfare projects, which tend to make the recipients permanently autonomous and self-sufficient.

It pays particular attention to the younger generations, directing resources towards education and vocational training in favor of street children in the city of Soddo in Ethiopia.

Where we operate

Busajo NGO concentrates its interventions in Ethiopia in the Wolayta region, which has about 5.83 million inhabitants. According to the human development index (ISU), Ethiopia is one of the poorest countries in the world, it ias in 173rd place out of 189 countries and life expectancy stops at the threshold of 63 years.

Our projects are developed in Soddo – which has about 200,000 inhabitants and is located 330 km south of Addis Ababa – and in the surrounding rural areas. The population lives on sheep farming, agriculture and commerce, however in recent years the Ethiopian government has invested in new infrastructure: roads, airports, government offices and schools built in almost the entire region.

The rapid phenomenon of urbanization, building expansion and demographic growth has caused a sudden raise in the number of street children, who flee from rural villages to the city in search of better living conditions and increase petty crime and child prostitution. Today there are about 3,000 street children in the city of Soddo alone.

Busajo means “The one who sees ahead”
Our institution believes that non-sustainable interventions cannot solve the great problems of the African continent and that it is necessary to direct economic resources above all to the cultural and professional training of the younger generations. The aim is to initiate a process of personal growth in the recipients, to allow them to get definitively out from social marginalization and degradation, thus contributing to building a future with new prospects for autonomy.
Why we do it
Because we believe that investing in education and professional training is the only way out of a state of indigence and extreme poverty, to pursue self-sufficiency, essential for a better quality of life. Our local staff works and is committed with passion and proficiency, so that street girls and boys can regain confidence in their future to build a constantly developing social, cultural and economic network.
How we do it
In Italy, primarily in Florence, we take care of fundraising:
- soliciting donations from individuals and companies and participating in public tenders and calls for the selection by Foundations
- availing ourselves of the support of the Giunti al Punto bookshops throughout the country, which donate to our project the revenues from the sale of bookmarks
- guaranteeing the donor maximum transparency on the funds raised with confidentiality and respect for privacy
- organizing events
In Ethiopia:
Our Italian Country Manager, expatriate and resident on site, manages the Busajo Campus project. The rest of the staff is entirely Ethiopian, qualified personnel who work with dedication and commitment for the ordinary management and carrying out the educational program.

Busajo Campus

The development and expansion of the city of Soddo has greatly increased the number of street children – girls and boys – and the phenomena of petty crime, exploitation, school dropout and child prostitution are assuming increasingly alarming dimensions.
Busajo Campus is a project aimed at these minors, but it also reserves space for the recovery and professional training of older girls and boys, who are not included in the few existing programs addressed to the youngest in the country.
Our intervention was welcomed with enthusiasm by the local authorities, who guaranteed their support and assigned us a land of about 35,000 square meters on which we built Busajo Campus, where about 80 boys and girls reside on rotation.
