SIL Ethiopia partners closely with the Ethiopia Government and regional partners, and with other non-governmental agencies to serve the language communities of Ethiopia.

SIL partners with the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, Universities and other governmental bodies. We are a founding member of the Ethiopian Multilingual Education Network.   We also partner with International Institutions such as the European Union and Geneva Global.

This long history of cooperation and co-working means that SIL Ethiopia is ideally positioned to influence, train and partner at both the national and the local levels. Our on-the-ground expertise allows us to deliver programmes in integral partnership with local communities.

For language development, SIL International is an official partner of UNESCO.
