Ethiopia at a Glance

Ethiopia is one of the poorest nations on the globe, with more than half of the population living in poverty. Frequent droughts leave poor farming families without food crops, causing periodic famines.

  • More than 80 percent of the population earns less than U.S. $2 a day.
  • Ethiopia has only one medical doctor per 100,000 people.
  • Just over 8 percent of babies die during or soon after birth.
  • HIV and AIDS exacerbate poverty by taking the lives of young adults, who are most productive for society.

Start Sponsoring a Child Today!

Your tax-deductible contribution of just $38 a month connects a child living in poverty with a loving, church-based Child Sponsorship Program.

Your support provides:

  • Medical checkups, which often save lives
  • Nutritious food
  • Health and hygiene training
  • Educational assistance
  • Access to special services like surgeries and disaster relief
  • Mentoring to help children discover their incredible value as God’s children
  • Most important of all, your sponsored child will hear about Jesus Christ and be encouraged to develop a lifelong relationship with God. Just imagine how exciting it will be when one day you get to heaven and your sponsored child is there with you because you chose to sponsor him or her.

When you sponsor a child, you'll receive your child's photo, personal story and a child sponsorship packet by mail in approximately 10 days.

When children find out they've been sponsored, the joy they feel is indescribable. Just knowing that someone across the globe cares means more than you can imagine. Sponsoring a child in need will profoundly change the future for your child, and will change your own life as well.
