Protecting children and families
Poverty and internal conflict are a big reason why 200,000 children are living outside of family-based care in major Ethiopian cities. When children are separated from their families, an orphanage has historically been the solution for their care.
Family is essential
Decades of research emphasize that family is essential to a child’s physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Our first priority in Ethiopia is keeping children stable and safe with their family of origin. When that’s not possible, we find local adoptive families who can provide a loving home.
Your gift helps keep families together.
Help support Bethany’s work in Ethiopia
Ethiopia needs a child protection system that provides loving homes for children, not orphanages. With your gift, we can train more foster parents—because children need families.
