Update: AGCI is currently accepting applications for Waiting Child adoptions; and applications from up to 5 families interested in or approved to adopt a child or sibling group of children ages 6 to 12.
Every day the 75 million people of Ethiopia face famine and disease. While nearly every Ethiopian feels the impact, the 4.3 million orphans are the most vulnerable. With one of the largest orphan populations in the world, approximately one in six Ethiopian children die before their fifth birthday.
Seeing this great need, AGCI became licensed in Ethiopia and opened our Hannah’s Hope transition home in 2006. Hannah’s Hope focuses on providing personalized attention, love and care to children until their adoption process is complete and they are united with their AGCI adoptive families.
Hannah’s Hope in Ethiopia is supervised by Almaz, AGCI’s in-country program director. Almaz is an Ethiopian-American with a broad range of personal and professional experience. Almaz is incredibly passionate and committed to the children and families that AGCI serves.
Children from 2 months to 15 years of age are currently available for adoption. Also, in our waiting children program, older and special needs children may be available for adoptive parents.
