What does sponsorship look like?

Our Debre Markos children are primarily children living on the streets, or in very dire situations and through you, we are helping to alleviate those conditions. Ethiopia does not have a welfare or foster care system, so it’s up to private organizations to help those in need. We are working to reunify our children with family members, and to help each family get on their feet so that they can work, eat, go to school and become contributing members of their community.
