Mission and Vision


The Academy of Ethiopian Languages and cultures’ vision is to become center of excellence in the field of Ethiopian languages and Cultures, and to establish itself as one of the best research institutions on linguistic and cultural studies.


Identify and describe as many as Ethiopian languages (including their dialects), to document endangered and least-known languages thereby rendering them the knowledge they encode accessible to Ethiopians at large, collect, analyze and preserve folklores in a drive to establish firmly the Ethiopian culture in our educational system enabling us to tap a huge reservoir of cultural wealth and build on the system of knowledge we must explore to  enhance the capacity of Ethiopian Languages to meet the developmental needs of their speakers, and translating time honored Ge’ez manuscripts into Amharic and many other languages
