Ethiopia is located in East Africa and home to over 96 million people. While it has achieved significant economic growth in the past several decades, Ethiopia still remains a low-income country with 25% of the population living in extreme poverty (defined as living on less than $1.90 a day).

Often called the "Cradle of Humanity," Ethiopia has an ancient culture rich with tradition, language, music and delicious food.  It is also the birthplace of coffee.
