Giving Thanks

As we enter the Thanksgiving and Holiday season in the US, it’s important for us to give thanks for the many ways Selamta has been blessed this year. We are thankful for:

  • Happy and healthy forever families in Ethiopia
  • Dedicated supporters who give their time, talent and treasure to ensure Selamta’s success
  • Gifted Ethiopian staff who live out everyday serving our families
  • Volunteers and Ambassadors who travel to live with and serve our families
  • New friends who joined Selamta this year through our Lead the Way 5K and other events
  • Sponsors who build relationships with our children, youth, moms and families
  • New technology that lets all of us connect in new ways even though distance separates us physically
  • Our rich history as an organization and those who laid the foundation on which we build
  • Parter organizations who support us through donations, expertise, training and new opportunities
  • Seeing our kids grow from children to youth to university students – EXTRAORDINARY!
  • Opportunities for our moms to learn new skills and find their own independence
  • Hope for the bright futures of our families!

Our simple Thank You can’t begin to cover the depth of gratitude we hold for each of you who are a part of Selamta Family Project. It certainly takes a village a raise a child and we are so fortunate to have a worldwide village involved in the raising of our families!
