a local Ethiopian NGO that was established in November 2000 in response to
the staggering AIDS pandemic and its related problems.
The organization provides community-based care and support to the
growing number of rejected children and disintegrating family structures
caused by HIV/AIDS. Our

infected children and caregivers. The
Organization’s services include providing food, clothing, shelter,

advocacy on behalf of AIDS patients and psychological support.
We also provide home based care, grief counseling, HIV/AIDS counseling, peer education, vocational training for older AIDS orphans and their caregivers so that they may be self-sufficient and a range of other educational programs.
