We are improving the lives of the vulnerable families of Debre Zeyit, Ethiopia through a variety of ongoing projects designed to tackle many of the urgent challenges facing these families, including hunger and lack of education.
We educate more than 2,000 students each year at our school, the BCI Academy. We opened our doors in 2009 and in 2018 sent our first University graduates into the workforce. Learn More
We offer widows a chance to become self-supporting by teaching job skills and providing opportunities to put these skills into use to generate an income. Learn More
We feed hundreds of meals to hungry and impoverished children each week through our breakfast and lunch feeding programs. We also provide grain support to keep their bellies full at home. Learn More
Many of the children in our care have never celebrated their birthdays. Some don't even know their date of birth. There just aren't funds available to spend on parties and gifts.
If you want to change this, you can send your sponsored child or any child in the program a special birthday gift. If you'd like, you can add on a birthday party, allowing your child to celebrate with cake and balloons alongside their family and friends.
What a blessing it is for the children to receive recognition and a special surprise on their birthdays!
