BIG News at Selamta!

It is with a full heart and extraordinary gratitude that we thank Abel Solomon for 9 years of executive leadership as our Ethiopian Director at Selamta. Abel has decided to move on from his role at Selamta but he and his family will always be an important part of our Selamta Family! 

Pictured above, Abel and his family are surrounded by our Selamta Families. Our kids planned and organized a surprise party for Abel complete with skits, songs, dancing and delicious food. It was a beautiful tribute and we will always be grateful to Abel for his dedication to Selamta!


It's our honor to introduce you to Tamrat Kebede!

Tamrat has joined Selamta Family Project to lead our team as our Ethiopian Director. Tamrat brings tremendous experience to this position and has a heart for, and personal understanding of, what it's like to be considered an orphaned child. 

Tamrat is a family man, married with 3 sons and a baby girl on the way. When asked why he wanted to do this job he said,

"It's a calling. It demands your heart. When I asked why the previous country director left I was surprised he had been there for 10 years. This passion drives me to want to be a part of Selamta. God is giving me this opportunity."
