Get Involved

Partner with us

Our partnerships with external organisations help us to sustain and plan our work in Ethiopia more effectively.


A main feature of our collaborations is the capacity building that we provide both in terms of the health system within Ethiopia but also of the organisation’s we partner with. We aim to develop and expand the skills, abilities, processes and reach of your organisation in order to improve performance, quality of services and delivery.

To discuss opportunities to partner with us, please contact us.

Volunteer with us

THENA's work cannot happen without the extremely generous time and expertise offered by our volunteers. There is always so much to be done.


We would love to hear from any specialist or researcher who has an interest in joining us either on a short-term or a longer-term basis. Previous volunteers have helped us to train health workers, provide mentoring at health centres, deliver collaborative research with Jimma and Gondar Universities, and to provide IT systems expertise.

To discuss opportunities to volunteer, please contact us.


The generosity of our committed supporters has revolutionized the treatment of non-communicable diseases in Ethiopia for over 20 years. But if we are to expand and offer diagnosis and care to even more rural communities, we need your help.

£40 could fund 1 blood pressure machine in rural Ethiopia. A vital piece of equipment in the detection and treatment of hypertension, a major risk factor linked to various non communicable diseases.

£200 could fund three days of stroke care and treatment training to nurses and physiotherapists in Ethiopia, helping to reduce the morbidity and mortality of stroke, one of the leading causes of death in the country.

Thank you for your support!
