Despite the repressive dictatorship not allowed organizations working with human rights, the civil society organizations in Ethiopia has delivered innovative services to the marginalized and underserved people and communities with Swedish support. The cooperation emphasizes human rights, gender equality and poverty reduction. The Swedish program has, through nine Civil Sociaty organizations and so called umbrella modalities, reached more than 150 smaller and evolving civil organizations throughout Ethiopia.

Through individual interviews among affected people the book seeks to illustrate the conditions for people living under challenging circumstances in the communities. This book where I have written text and shooten all the photographies, was a assignment from the Swedish Embassy in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
