Meseret Humanitarian Organization

Meseret Humanitarian Organization (MHO) is a women-headed non-governmental, not-for-profit charitable organization devoted to reducing vulnerability among children and women in Ethiopia.

MHO was established as a humanitarian organization in July 2011 and has been serving the Ethiopian people, particularly the most destitute children and women, for more than a decade. MHO is one of the leading local NGOs in Ethiopia engaged in various exemplary and impactful development initiatives. Over the past 12 years, MHO has been functioning in close coordination with underprivileged communities, the government, and other agencies, especially by extending its projects to remote and backward areas.
