CHADET has developed and implemented a safeguarding policy that encompass the philosophies, policies, standards, guidelines and procedures to protect children and vulnerable adults and steps to promote their wellbeing.


CHADET’s work on education focuses on promoting Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) and the provision of support for children at primary and secondary level of education with a focus on girls’ education.


CHADET’s livelihood programs are aimed at making contributions towards improving household income through imparting knowledge on marketable skills, economic empowerment for women and household nutrition.

Capacity Development

CHADET believes that building capacities of its stake holders is instrumental for ensuring the sustainability of its programs and in bringing about lasting solutions to local problems.

Research, Networking and Public Education

CHADET uses research as evidence for improving policy and practice. Networking with other CSOs is considered as a tool to reduce the challenges faced by children in an organised manner. Public education serves as a means by which CHADET reaches a wider audience for promoting the rights of children.


Many children in Ethiopia don’t have the opportunity to attend school, especially in the rural areas. One of the major barriers to access education is the burden of work. Whether at home or outside, it is customary for families to expect their children to work hard and support of their family. Some children, especially if they lack motivation from home, simply never get started with education. They may miss lessons, and do badly at school, and then miss more lessons out of lack of interest, and so it goes on. They very often end up dropping out of school completely.
