Dir Biyabir is a registered non-profit founded in 2006 to mobilize financial and human resources, for the specific purpose of supporting local grass-roots development projects in the poorest areas of Ethiopia. Our mission is to alleviate extreme poverty in Ethiopia by investing in people and developing their ability to help themselves. We strongly believe that the only sustainable solution to poverty is to enable people to unleash their full potential, their energy and their creativity, towards improving themselves and their communities.
We teach people how to use environmentally-friendly farming methods, create and operate businesses, and support their communities with their knowledge. We strengthen entire communities by making large-scale improvements to existing economic systems to benefit farmers. We help women develop leadership skills so that they can have access to greater opportunities such as education and entrepreneurship.
Immigrant Welcome Center
The Immigrant Welcome Center empowers immigrants by connecting them to the people, places, and resources that enable them to build successful lives and enrich our community. Diversity is one of Indianapolis’ strengths. We believe if all Indianapolis residents feel empowered and valued, it will result in more new businesses stabilizing our local economy, a flourishing arts community, new voices and leadership at community meetings, and creative approaches to addressing our city’s challenges.
