In Ethiopia, over 5 million children are orphaned or abandoned.
one-third of the people in Ethiopia live in extreme poverty
When families break apart, children are often left without parents
adoption not an option
many children have special needs or are considered “unadoptable”
we create families for children who have lost their own.
Our Forever family program is uniquely designed to give children the love and support they need.
Healthy family structure
We unite 8-10 children with a Selamta-trained mother in their own home, integrated into their local community.
Children grow up together
Children grow up as a family over a 10-20 year period before launching from Selamta’s care into independence.
Spiritual, mental & physical growth
Our professional staff serve each family with an emphasis on education, health & wellness, psychosocial support, and spiritual & life skills development.
Restoring family, dignity, and hope
Growing up in a stable family, surrounded by the love of Christ gives children a strong sense of belonging and hope.
You can provide family, dignity, and hope for a child in need.
Here’s how it works:
