Life Uplifted by Change in Africa (LUCIA) is a small volunteer-run international development charity based in the West Midlands, UK. Our goal is to improve the lives of women and children in Ethiopia through local projects encouraging long term growth and development. LUCIA helps to provide women, both as individuals and as community groups, with the support they need to begin generating their own incomes. This improves their lives and that of their families, and they become motivated and less reliant on international aid. The charity also supports orphans and children with education, shelter and healthcare.

LUCIA is registered with the UK Charity Commission, as charity number 1112674.
