Ethiopia The Shepherds Fold Orphanage - Addis Ababa Ethiopia Be A HERODonate Button Small NA

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

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.
