    our journey

    Who we are

    We are a purpose-led technology and communication company committed to contributing to Ethiopia’s digital transformation and inclusion objectives.

    Our journey began in May 2021, when our international consortium named the Global Partnership for Ethiopia, comprising Safaricom Plc, Vodafone Group, Vodacom Group, Sumitomo Corporation and British International Investment (formerly known as CDC Group) was announced as the winning applicant for a license to operate telecommunication services in Ethiopia.

    We were granted a nationwide full-service Unified Telecommunications Service License on 9 July 2021 and were officially registered as Safaricom Telecommunications Ethiopia Plc in July 2021. We are building strong foundations through win-win partnerships to provide services that will transform Ethiopian Lives.
