Project HOPEFUL’s direct care efforts in Awassa, Ethiopia are focused on vulnerable children and their families. Our goal is to keep families together and ensure access to education for their children, and to help families achieve financial independence through vocational training and initial financial support.DSC_3211

We work in Awassa and the surrounding areas in the Sidama region of Ethiopia to provide for the basic needs of children and families. Some of the children live at the Ajuuja Children’s Home while others live alone or with their families.

 Sponsoring families or individuals agree to “stand in the gap” for the child that they sponsor by praying for them and their family regularly and providing $30 per month to sponsor the child.  Depending on where and how a family lives, assistance is tailored to their specific needs and includes food, education, clothing, access to medical support and spiritual support.

Additio6U2A1028nal giving opportunities exist.

 These include the cow or goat fund, mosquito nets, Bibles,  clean water projects, Enabling Independence (women’s business initiative) and orphanage support.

We are also actively looking for businesses and churches to partner with Project HOPEFUL to support the efforts in and around Awassa  and to help catalyze grass roots business in the area.
