About us

Who we are​

We are group of professionals keen to contribute our fair share back to Ethiopia. Nothing more. Nothing less.

Experience teaches us, things are best achieved, scaled and sustained when done through proper channels and institutions than individual efforts. ENPO is a vehicle organization we established to facilitate this.

Our story begins from the first meeting held at Jun 24, 2018 in Oslo, Norway. Selamawit Jimma initiated this meeting by contacting group of professionals from her network. This meeting led to the establishment of Ethiopian Norwegian Professional Organisation, ENPO, at August 10, 2018. Since then a number of meetings have passed before ENPO gets officially registered by Norway's Brønnøysundregistrene at January 9, 2019. Our registration number is 921 557 876.


ENPO's aim is to serve as a broader platform for Ethiopians and friends of Ethiopia across all professions so that they are able to connect, network, share experience, resources and pursue community development practices. We are non-political, non-religious and non-profit organisation.


Our vision is to have a strong society both in Ethiopia and in Norway that shares ideas, skills and resources that enrich our wellbeing.


Our mission is to utilize our human, social and financial capital to the maximum possible and fulfill our vision.


Our values are to act with honesty, integrity and transparency. We are governed by a set of ethical rules and codes of conduct.
