Ethiopia Hope for the Hopeless BE A HERODonate Button Small NA

City: Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
Project:  Hope for the Hopeless Orphanage
Partner:  Maranatha Gospel Ministry
Number of Children: 20 on campus; 75 placed with families of the church for continued support.

The Maranatha Gospel Ministry ("Maranatha") was established in 1993 to foster the growth and development of female street children in Ethiopia. Originally, it was only able to offer the children lunch on a daily basis because it did not have a facility. Now they have two homes and care for both boys and girls. Maranatha's goal is to place children with a family. Most, if not all, of the families are poor, so the Ministry continues to provide basic necessities for the children such as food, clothing, medical care, and educational aid.


City: Addis Ababa

Orphanage: Mojo Meserete Kristos Church Orphanage & School
Number of Children: 180

Description: Mojo Meserete Kristos is a church that takes the role given to them by the scriptures very seriously. Along with supporting adults and widows in need, the church opened an orphanage that has children ranging in age from 2 to 14 years old. These children attend school which is also run by the church. The children are provided with basic necessities such as food, medical care, clothing, and psychological services. Many of the children have medical issues which would not be addressed if they were on the street.

City: Addis Ababa
Orphanage: The Shepherd's Fold
Number of Children: 50 currently supported; 350 waiting to receive support.

Description: The Shepherd's Fold Alliance ("TFSA" means "hope" in Amharic) is a humanitarian organization, founded by three churches in Addis, that helps street children, orphans, and children whose parents are in dire need. The program specifically targets orphaned children because they are the most likely to be abused and exploited. Rather than housing all of the children, the majority are sheltered and cared for by extended family or foster parents. This not only alleviates some of the financial burdens of TFSA, but it also gives the children a semblance of family life and normalcy.
