ሰላም ናችሁ?

Ethiopia Insight is impartial and strives for maximum objectivity. We report with reliability on government, politics, business and aid in Ethiopia.

Our focus is producing under-reported news and incisive analysis about one of Africa's largest and most important countries. We have diverse fact-checked opinion pieces that are analytical, biting, and constructive. Over time, we want the website to become a portal for Ethiopians to discuss African and global affairs.

Ethiopia Insight is run by former Ethiopia Bloomberg correspondent William Davison, a British citizen with a decade’s experience in Ethiopian journalism.

Despite being Africa's second-most populous country, Ethiopia suffers an acute lack of independent reporting with a weak private media in Addis Ababa and almost none elsewhere in a country of more than 100 million people.

There is a pressing need for improved coverage, particularly as a new leadership promises rapid democratization of this fascinating and strategically critical African nation.

Currently, Ethiopia Insight is entirely volunteer-run. We are seeking donations to initially fund journalists Ermias Tasfaye and Solomon Yimer in Addis Ababa and then across Ethiopia's nine regions to kick-start our media enterprise.

If every regular reader donates just $1 a month, we will be able to significantly expand and improve our coverage.

So, if you like what we have done so far, please support our efforts to produce more lively, non-partisan, hard-hitting Ethiopian journalism.
