Hope for children US

Hope for Children is 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 vision is to enable HIV/AIDS affected children and families to live with dignity in their local communities while ensuring that their basic needs are met.  

To achieve this vision, Hope for Children provides essential services to children who have lost their parents to HIV/AIDS and caregivers who are located in Addis Ababa and Babile. We now care and support for over 600 children in Addis Ababa and the eastern part of Ethiopia.
We also sponsor thousands of kids for the provision of school uniforms and stationary relevant for their education.

 Hope for Children also works to promote community knowledge and support for HIV-affected and infected children and caregivers.  The Organization’s services include providing food, clothing, shelter, education and medical assistance to those living with HIV/AIDS, as well as 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.
