Target demographics: The poorest of the poor families with children 0 - 5 years old living in the slum areas of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The following is true of these families:
- They are making less than $1 per day.
- They are not supported by any other organization.
- It is a single parent household.
- Mom is willing to give up begging and start working.
- Without intervention they may face needing to give the child up for adoption.

Direct beneficiaries per year: 126 (2012)

Geographic areas served: Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

Programs: We currently have a Holistic Intervention Program for 66 Children and their mothers. These children are from the poorest of the poor homes and their father is not in the picture. A Free Day Care provides the central piece of the program as well as Nutrition, Free Health Care, Empowering, Micro-Enterprise, Education, Hygiene, Special Needs / HIV, Community Development and Psycho Social Development. We are a Christian Based Project, believing that fullness of hope, life and wholeness is found in a life of following Jesus.

We also have a Literacy Room / Childrens Library that is due to open soon.

Mission:
Partnering with the Poor, the Child, the Orphan and the Family to see Hope Embraced in all of life.
Results:
The project has grown in one year from 20 children to 66 children and their mothers. The children are thriving - becoming physically healthy, growing cognitively and developing socially. Mothers are also growing in dignity and sustainability.
The next aim is to replicate this project in another slum area of Addis Ababa as well as to add an after school / tutoring program.

"Without sponsorship through Embracing Hope Ethiopia, this child would be dead!" That is all I could think as we drove to the hospital in Addis. I watched an EHE staff member navigate the crowds of people in the hospital admission area, comfort the child's distraught mother, and get this child the ... more »
