LUCIA was a small volunteer-run international development charity based in the West Midlands, UK. The charity formed in 2005 and closed in 2017, after supporting a number of successful development projects in Ethiopia.
LUCIA helped to provide women, both as individuals and as community groups, with the support they needed to begin generating their own incomes. This improved their lives and that of their families, and they became motivated and less reliant on international aid. The charity also supported orphans and children with education, shelter and healthcare.
LUCIA was registered as charity number 112674.
