About us

We enable the poorest people in Ethiopia to work together in community organisations. Through funding and training they find carers for orphans and provide everything the poorest children need in order to live a healthy, stimulating life, creating opportunities for them to grow and flourish. Through start-up funding community organisations set up social enterprises and the profits are used to continue their local fight against child poverty. We then move on to support other poor communities to do the same. We work with a wide range of partners to achieve this. Why not join us and make the difference to the life of an orphan child and become a part of this incredible African success story.

All about The Child

Living in the eastern city of Dire Dawa, the Gende Tesfa community is one of the poorest in Ethiopia. Many years ago people in the community suffered from leprosy and the rest of the city kept away from anybody living there. Today, even though leprosy is no longer present people are still treated as social outcasts. Consequently poverty is terrible because people cannot get jobs and children have not been able to go to school.
