New Home for Ethiopian orphans

We are currently seeking funds in order to buy a Home for our 40 orphans in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. We have created a beautiful home for these children, whom we house, educate and love. We have to move them almost every year and decided to buy a Home now as it is too unsettling for them.

June 2010 - June 2011

Give a Future Foundation
  • Need


    We will solve the constant moving of our Home by buying one which will give us the security to run the Home for many more years and construct our community projects around the Home. Our programs are community driven and we have schools, scholarship funds, vocational training and micro finance programs for children and women in the same area.


    Give a Future will buy a Home so we can construct our programs for many more years to come in a safe and successful way in order to bring about sustainable change in our community in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

  • Background


    Addis Ababa, Ethiopia


    40 orphans directly and hundreds of other families through community programs. There are 10 mio orphans by 2012 in Ethiopia and we are making a small but valuable contribution in reducing hardship to children and families in general. Ethiopia is rich in culture and tradition but very poor in economic terms, we improve childrens and women's lives through education.

  • Why Us?

    Why Us?

    Give a Future already operates a Home for orphans in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. We have had 40 orphans living with us for the past 6 years and know them and take in new children when the older generation moves out into smaller group homes located around the Home.
