We have structured our organization to create a welcoming environment that treats all participants without preference to their Ethnicity, Religion, Political beliefs or Gender status. We remain committed to providing various social welfare services and opportunities to foster and educate others about Ethiopian culture and traditions in the United States. This will be done through sports, social events and community outreach programs.

AESAONE will remain in existence serving Ethiopians in North America and beyond for generations to come.
