We need your support.

Currently, Ethiopia Insight is volunteer-run.

We are therefore seeking monthly donations to fund our growing team of reporters in Addis Ababa (x2), Burayu, Assosa, Hawassa and Mekele to help kickstart our media enterprise.

All funds are paid to our Ethiopian news reporters. None of it goes to our commentators and not a penny stays with me.

If you, your organization, your company, or your research is benefiting from our coverage, please make a contribution so we can continue to improve and expand our reporting.

There are three ways to support. The preferred one is via Patreon. This allows you to make monthly contribution and participate in our editorial process and collaborative journalism projects. For more details visit Ethiopia Insight’s Patreon page

If most regular readers donate just $5 a month, we will be able to significantly increase our coverage. If a small proportion of regular readers donate $10 a month that will be a huge boost to our reporting.

The second method is via PayPal, but the funds will go to the same cause: funding the salary and expenses of Ethiopian reporters.

If you’d like to support in birr via an Ethiopian bank account deposit or transfer, please email us at and we will organize.

If you like what we do, please support our efforts to produce more lively, non-partisan, hard-hitting reporting on Ethiopia.

Thank you


Ethiopia Insight operates under Ethiopia Foresight Ltd, a UK company
