The Forum for Ethiopian Scholars and Professionals (FESP) is a non-partisan and independent nonprofit organization incorporated in Washington, D.C. It was registered after reforming and rebranding Vision Ethiopia.   

Our mission is to engage Ethiopian and Greater Horn of Africa scholars and professionals, and others by creating an independent forum for developing and sharing carefully considered policies that lead to better Ethiopia and Greater Horn of Africa.

Our core values, beliefs, and principles that guide its works and interactions with its partners and stakeholders. These include cooperation, excellence, independence, impartiality, integrity, accountability, innovation and adoption of new ideas, relevance, quality, transparency,  respect, societal impact, better governance, sustainability, diversity, indigenous knowledge, and inclusiveness.

It is governed by a board. It is not a membership-based organization.
