Wegen Technology Solutions PLC, a modern company that develops web applications, established WegenFund in partnership with the Bank of Abyssinia, a stakeholder. It created the platform to close the gap between fundraising & local impact. WegenFund was created modeling the well-known Ethiopian tradition of helping one another. It was designed to provide a solution aiding Ethiopians to support any cause they are interested in.
It aims to fill the need for a local donation platform & receive funds from all over the world to charities in Ethiopia. Its main goal is to enable charities, religious organizations, and associations to create their campaign and gather donations after receiving approval from the Bank of Abyssinia and WegenFund.
The platform introduces distinct opportunities to pass on knowledge to young Ethiopian IT professionals and allows Ethiopians to be independent using a platform made and administered by Ethiopians.
