Mission Statement

To provide orphaned and vulnerable children with a safe and secure family-like life in a group home setting and to support local community development through education and empowerment of vulnerable children and marginalized women, improving the economic well-being of the community through sustainable models of capacity building.

Description

The Betasab Project of the Global Family Initiative works with orphaned and vulnerable children and marginalized women in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

We have three distinct programs to serve our beneficiaries.

Origins Homes serve as our foundation. We create permanent family units of 7 - 10 orphaned and/or abandoned children and two women, a mother and an aunty, and nurture these new families by providing housing, clothing, food, education in a local private school, excellent healthcare, opportunities for recreation, a small savings account towards their future, and an abundance of love.

Learning Lions is a community based education support program for underprivileged children who already have home environments, but whose families (often single mothers) struggle to keep them enrolled and successfully performing in school. We provide schoolbooks and materials (pens, pencils, notebooks), uniforms, shoes, backpacks, an extra set of clothing and shoes, and supplement school fees.

Sheba Women’s Empowerment program will launch in 2017. The program will provide women in the community opportunities for training and support toward reaching economic independence and stability. Learning Lions mothers will have priority in applications to the program.
