To empower the most disadvantaged communities in Ethiopia and neighbouring countries to end child poverty
Tesfa Hope Campaign
IN THE CAMPAIGN SO FAR
we have opened two new Breakfast Clubs for a 140 children
we have given emergency aid to Internally Displaced Persons
we have supported Womens Self Help groups across Ethiopia
A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL OUR SUPPORTERS
Self help groups bring women together in small groups.
They support each in saving each week, then there is training and support in setting up
small businesses, with loans and ongoing support.
They also become more aware of child rights, working together to end female genital
mutilation, child abuse and slavery.
They work together with each other and other groups to build civil society.
They are bringing about a quiet economic, social and political revolution, as well as helping thousands out of povery.
Supporting in climate change.
Our actions include planting trees, growing different and varied crops, cleaning and removing rubbish.
Watch this film to show how two projects, one at Lake Hawassa in the Rift Valley of Ethiopia and the other in the Don River Basin in the UK share the same concern for our environment.
HOW WE WORK
Our approach is based on a simple principle.
Members of the poor communities themselves are the people with the insights, determination, perseverance – and responsibility – to care for their own children and to improve their own situations.
We believe that children should be cared for in their own community
Our projects are planned, managed and staffed by local people
We respond to all the needs of children within their community
