Let’s Become part of the solution

Dec 21, 2018

Did you know that in Ethiopia there are 4.5 million orphans? Many children become orphans because of the negative effects of extreme poverty. There are countless number of parents in Ethiopia that are struggling today to give their children basic needs such as food, clothing, shelter, and education.

After working in Ethiopia for several years, the Addis Jemari staff began to dream of ways to not only combat the orphan crisis, but also prevent it.

We have recently launched our Family Empowerment Program (FEP) for 50 impoverished families in the Akaki Kality sub-city of Addis Ababa. Our FEP families have been identified by the local government of needing desperate and immediate help. They are on the brink of family breakdown.

Addis Jemari will come alongside our FEP families and provide for their most basic needs: food, education, and medical expenses. Life skills training, financial literacy courses, and income generation opportunities will also be provided to ensure sustainable solutions for the future and that they stay together as a family unit.
