HelpAge International

We believe that the contribution older people make to society is invaluable. Yet older people remain some of the poorest and most neglected in the world. We are committed to helping them claim their rights, challenge discrimination and overcome poverty.
Our vision and mission

Our vision is of a world in which all older people can lead dignified, active, healthy and secure lives.

We work with our partners to ensure that people everywhere understand how much older people contribute to society and that they must enjoy their right to healthcare, social services and economic and physical security.
Our values

We believe that "age helps" – a position which puts the experience of older women and men at the centre of our work. This guides the type of programmes we run, the way we develop our advocacy work and the way we communicate.

Our values and the way we behave are:


How we work

    We put older men and women at the heart of our work, involving them in programme design, implementation and review.
    We work in partnership with like-minded organisations.
    We provide services where governments are not.
    We respond to emergencies quickly and effectively.
    We develop ways of improving older people's lives by monitoring our programmes.
    We persuade policy makers to address ageing issues.

Ethiopia is the second most populous country in Africa with a population of nearly 90 million. Despite having good economic growth, it remains among the 10 poorest countries in the region.

HelpAge began working in Ethiopia in 1992 and works with 20 local partners to support older people.

HelpAge’s priority programmes include income security, social care and support, inclusive health and wellbeing, emergency response and resilience building.


HelpAge International helps older people claim their rights, challenge discrimination, and overcome poverty, so that they can lead dignified, secure, active and healthy lives. Our work in over 75 countries is strengthened through our global network of like-minded organisations – the only one of its kind in the world.
