we believe every child deserves to grow up in a loving, stable family.


Poverty and brokenness leave families and children vulnerable, cast aside, and alone.


But we have hope.







We restore family, dignity and hope to vulnerable children and families in our communities. 


Our Strategy


Selamta is rooted in family and integrated into the community. 

Our holistic approach supports education, health & wellness, psychosocial support, and spiritual & life skills development.

With an emphasis on restoration and prevention, Selamta’s programs recreate family for those who have lost their own and prevent more children from becoming orphaned or abandoned.



If you believe that family, dignity, and hope can change the course of someone's life, join us.


Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father, means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.”
— James 1:27
