Our Child-Centered Approach

Zekarias reading-wide

Our approach is child-centered and community-based.

We recognize that a child’s development is shaped by the local context, economic conditions, social norms, and government policies. As a result, we direct our investments to Ethiopian-based organizations that have local experience and expertise to provide for the most vulnerable children in Addis Ababa. Through our partnerships we aim to:

  • Build the capacity of children and young adults affected by poverty and HIV/AIDS
  • Create a supportive environment for vulnerable children and their extended families
  • Strengthen Ethiopian-based non-profit organizations serving marginalized children
