More than four million orphaned children struggle to survive every day in Ethiopia–many of whom lost their parents to Africa’s HIV/AIDS outbreak. Over the past seven years, AGCI has served more than 20,000 orphaned children, widows and at-risk community members living in Ethiopia, through our orphan care ministry.
Yet with adoptions in Ethiopia having decreased by approximately 40% over the past two years, it has become more important than ever for our family preservation and orphan care initiatives to continue. Without your help, many vulnerable children and families in Ethiopia will lose these important programs that provide sustainable, permanent options for children, families and communities all over Ethiopia. The important AGCI outreach programs listed below are working to holistically care for orphaned children where they are at, while also striving to address the cycle of poverty that leads to orphaned children and separated families.
