Our vision is to see people affected by epilepsy and associated disabilities receive the quality medical care they need, and the public respect, fairness and understanding they deserve so that they can live a healthy productive life, free from discrimination and stigma, and have opportunity to realise their full potential.

ራዕያችን የሚጥል ህመም እና በተያያዥ የአካል ጉዳት የተጎዱ ሰዎች የሚፈልጉትን ጥራት ያለው የህክምና እንክብካቤ ሲያገኙ ማየት እና የሚገባቸውን የህዝብ አክብሮት ፣ ፍትሃዊነት እና መረዳትን ከአድሎአዊነት እና መገለል የፀዳ ጤናማ ምርታማ ኑሮ እንዲኖሩ ነው፡፡

About Us

CareEpilepsy Ethiopia is a small, grassroots organization founded to raise awareness of epilepsy to eradicate the stigma associated with the condition and promote the interest of people with epilepsy on federal and regional levels. Our charity is the first, and only non-governmental, non-religious epilepsy focused charitable organization supporting the neglected community of people with epilepsy in Ethiopia. We aim to improve the welfare of patients with epilepsy by being an advocate for their needs by working together with the patients, their families, and diverse local community members.  We also work tirelessly to build partnerships with other stakeholders such as government ministries and NGOs to address the medical, social and environmental factors contributing to epilepsy and improve the service of epilepsy care.

Our People

We work for people with epilepsy, their families and anyone who is affected by epilepsy.


Our vision is to see people with epilepsy protected, respected, healthy, free from discrimination and stigma to achieve mental wellness and have opportunities to realize their full potential.


Our mission is to save the lives of people with epilepsy by increasing access to epilepsy service and treatment and change the perceptions of epilepsy through education, leadership and advocacy.


Our core ethics which we abide by are compassionate care, integrity, partnership, accountability, innovation and inclusiveness.


Our beliefs are derived from the principles outlined by the World Health Organisation "…the highest attainable standard of health as a fundamental right of every human being." We therefore believe:

  • People with epilepsy have the human right to receive timely medical care and treatment.
  • People with epilepsy deserve respect and dignity and equitable access to epilepsy care.
  • Local leaders and local institutions are the best agents of change.
  • Shared knowledge, skills, and experience are our most valuable tools.
  • Culture-tailored communication is the most effective way to relay our message.
  • Partnership is the only way to lasting change.
