The David and Lucile Packard Foundation


For more than 50 years, the David and Lucile Packard Foundation ("Packard Foundation") has worked with partners around the world to improve the lives of children, families, and communities—and to restore and protect our planet.


The Packard Foundation's support for DKT Ethiopia dates back more than a decade when the foundation first invested in DKT's growing family planning and reproductive health activities.


Currently, the foundation helps fund DKT Ethiopia's Higher Education Initiative (HEI), a multi-year reproductive health intervention at Ethiopia's public universities and technical and vocational education (TVET) training institutes.


Packard Foundation funding facilitates behavior change among student populations. It also helps with macro-level changes with administrations and surrounding communities that ultimately will lead to better sexual and reproductive health outcomes for Ethiopian students.
