Get to know the backstory of Ethiopia’s latest groundbreaking achievement
The name Eyezon, “አይዞን”, is used to express sympathy. It is also to mean Eyes On Ethiopia, reminding of the urgent attention Ethiopia needs. With the community's Eyes On your cause, we can now support one another in times of need more than ever.
Eyezon is a gift-based crowdfunding platform that enables nonprofit organizations to raise money online from supporters with the causes they are passionate about. The project is owned by the Ethiopian Diaspora Agency and the platform was developed by Chapa Financial Technologies S.C. (Chapa), a homegrown fintech company that previously developed mygerd.com (the platform for donation to GERD). It has received a security clearance for cybersecurity from Information Network Security Agency, a government entity that oversees national cybersecurity for Ethiopia.
Chapa S.C. started its venture with the mission of empowering people and businesses to create a global economy. And, with the assistance of the diaspora community, Eyezon is a noteworthy example of empowering non-profit organizations. Likewise, CBE has graciously agreed to cover the whole cost of international money transfer so that 100% of donations go to the causes that supporters choose to give. The Chapa team is delighted to assist non-profit organizations, in collaboration with the Ethiopian Diaspora Agency, in raising online donations from supporters for the various causes they care for.
Rest assured that when you give through this platform for any cause you are passionate about, 100% of your gift will go directly to the non-profit organization you choose to give to.
