AT A GLANCE:
Ethiopia, located in the horn of Africa, is a rugged, landlocked country filled with time-honored traditions and the ruins of ancient cities. But in recent years, this country rich in history has survived severe drought which destroyed food supplies for its nearly 96 million citizens. Today, nearly 50,000 children are malnourished, and many families are unable to meet their most basic needs. As a result, many children are sent to orphanages or left to fend for themselves on the streets.
In spite of this devastation, we believe God is doing good things in Ethiopia through you.
Specifically, with your help, we have the privilege to serve orphaned and vulnerable children in the Ziway and Adami Tulu communities. We do this through quality education, feeding programs, and faithful discipleship.
Our three school campuses provide education for students in Nursery through 8th grade at no cost to the student.
We praise God for the way He continues to provide for vulnerable children and families in these communities in Ethiopia.
