Our Local Partners

We partner with organizations that have deep community roots, a focus on programmatic quality, effective leadership, and a track record for achieving results with vulnerable and marginalized children and communities.

New Bright Community Development Center was established by a group of talented young Ethiopian professionals in Ethiopia who are committed to providing educational training, scholarships, psycho-social support, and business skills to vulnerable children and youth in the poorest neighborhoods of the city.

Hope for Children Ethiopia was one of the first Ethiopian non-profits dedicated to providing comprehensive community-based care and support to children and families affected by HIV/AIDS. Its founder, Yewoinshet Masresha, and the work of the organization have been featured on CNN, ABC, and Voice of America as an example of what one grassroots organization can accomplish in the fight against HIV/AIDS.

Hope for Children Australia has operated a country office in Addis Ababa since 2004 with a focus on empowering local communities to care for vulnerable children. They offer a wide range of programs which provide children with their basic needs and education. Their self-help group approach provides training for caretakers to improve parenting skills and gain economic self-sufficiency.
