For fun, Eden enjoys running. She attends church activities regularly and is in high school where her performance is average.

Your love and support will help Eden to receive the assistance she needs to develop her potential. Please pray for her.
Eden lives in the hillside community of Debre Berhan, home to approximately 105,000 residents. Typical houses are constructed of dirt floors, mud walls and thatched roofs. The primary ethnic group is Amhara and the most commonly spoken language is Amharic.

The regional diet consists of injera (bread) and wot (sauce). Common health problems in this area include respiratory diseases, diarrhea, fevers, skin fungus, tuberculosis and parasites. Most adults work as day laborers and earn the equivalent of $15 per month. This community needs libraries, computer training centers and stable employment opportunities.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of Debre Birhan Addis Kidan Child Development Project to provide Eden with Bible studies, choir, health checkups, health and hygiene education, recreational activities, field trips, tutoring, life skills training, clothing, shoes and nutritious food. The center staff will also provide opportunities for project involvement for the parents or guardians of Eden.
Ethiopia, a republic in northeastern Africa, shares boundaries with five other countries. Most of the country is a high plateau capped by mountains. Lowland deserts surround the plateau. The country is about twice the size of Texas. Mounds of historical treasures have been found in Ethiopia near its Lake Turkana and in the country's Awash River Valley. Ethiopia's population is diverse inhabited by more than 70 ethnic groups. Eighty percent of the people support themselves through subsistence farming in the central plateau region. The people of Ethiopia are besieged by famine and HIV/AIDS. Nearly one million people have HIV/AIDS. Ethiopia has a long history of Christianity dating to the fourth century when the country led a crusade into Saudi Arabia defeating a Jewish king who was said to have slain Christians. The main religions in the country today are Christianity and Islam. Amharic is the country's official language. Compassion works in the western, eastern, southern, northern, and central regions of the country. Ethiopia is the only African country not colonized by European colonial forces. Known as Abyssinia until recently, Ethiopia was ruled by a powerful kingdom in the first centuries. After the 1500s, Ethiopia became a number of small kingdoms, which were reunified in the 1880s. Emperor Haile Selassie took Ethiopia's throne in 1931. Since he was dethroned in 1974, the country has experienced political instability and several forms of government. In 1995, the country became the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia.
