Out of every $40,
$39 goes to the Child Sponsorship Program in Ethiopia
Hope In View’s child sponsorship program is based out of the capital city of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, in two of the poorest communities in this city.
We practice community-based care of orphans and vulnerable children. Ethiopian social workers and staff make sure every child receives good care. With the help of a host of local volunteers and churches, hands-on administration of the program happens in a variety of settings: on the streets, in homes, in churches, and at our sponsorship office.
With $40 per month, we provide supplemental nutrition, clothing, school fees, health care, spiritual care, social worker assistance, ongoing supervision of the children’s living situations, self-help groups for parents, and more.
The self-help groups provided through your sponsorship give parents or guardians support, parenting training, skills for coping with HIV and other serious challenges, and business training. Through these groups, parents gain much needed support in their community and learn to save their own money to start businesses. They also begin volunteering to improve their communities.
