Sponsor a waiting child

A child in Ethiopia is eager to have a sponsor so he/she can join the HMCHA
family. Your $360 a year provides a monthly payment for food for the whole family, and these special things for your sponsored child: field trip, medical care, bank account for graduation, a Christmas gift and a mentor who cares and visits the family and school. You’ll receive a bio and photo of your child and letters twice a year. Join the HMCHA family here in the U.S. We’d love to have you!

Camp for sponsored teens entering grades 8-10

Going to high school is a big deal. Teens rent a room in Bishoftu and must learn to cook, shop for food, and navigate a big city while attending school taught in a different language.  It’s a huge adjustment.  HMCHA has a 10-day camp to help 
them plan for this new challenge.  They learn about time management, goal-setting, and do science experiments, practice their English and have fun bonding with their HMCHA friends.  Consider supporting a student at camp for only $23 per child.

You’ll meet your sponsored child and others, work on meaningful projects with HMCHA staff, children and local volunteers. Form new relationships with our neighbors in Ethiopia, learn about a new old culture and walk with our children and staff in the hills of Yerer.

Watch for news of upcoming trips on our newsletter and Facebook.
