People to People (P2P) is a non-governmental, non-profit organization dedicated to improving health care and reducing the spread of diseases, particularly in Ethiopia and in diaspora communities. P2P has no political, ethnic, or religious affiliation. P2P works to mobilize the global Ethiopian diaspora to play an active role in mitigating the impact of brain drain and to ignite a passion for realizing our shared responsibility to give back.
Founded in 1999 and recognized as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization in the United States (federal tax ID#61-1346918), P2P is an international network of organizations, with headquarters in the US and an office in Ethiopia that serves as a focal point for all global chapters of the organization, including Canada, Finland, Sweden, Switzerland, the UK, and more. There are currently more than 5,000 P2P members worldwide, including doctors and other professionals who strive to make a difference in the lives of others. P2P also holds consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (UNESCO).
