During the past two years that our family has lived in Ethiopia we’ve found that orphan care is in desperate need of a big solution. Big solutions start with big visions. Here is ours.
Widows and Orphans (Meeting Both Needs)
We work with local churches to find widows and mothers who’ve been left to lead their households on their own. In a country like Ethiopia, where resources are scarce, these women often find themselves on the streets, with no way to provide for their families.
We will train and provide for these women, so they can support their own families and, in turn, open their homes to children who’ve been left as orphans.
We will provide a first class private education to each of the children living in the Bring Love In homes.
We will have a team of nurses and social workers on our staff who will visit each home on a regular basis, ensuring the level of care – both emotional and physical – remains high.
Our focus is on building future leaders, residing within their home countries – leaders who will bring vision and direction to their communities.
Designed to Grow
Our goal is to build a large network of widow led homes all across the region surrounding Addis Ababa. We will focus on keeping costs low and raising children within their home community at a level of care that is par with the median income in the area.
Our vision is to expand as quickly as possible, while maintaining a good level of care for the children.
Although we are believers in adoption, personally having adopted two children ourselves, we have seen, from living in Ethiopia for the past two years, that adoption only solves a minuscule part of a huge problem. More needs to be done to address the greater issues, and we know that our family is called to do just that. Therefore, this orphanage will focus on keeping the orphans in country and giving them the best possible foundation, both spiritually and emotionally, to go out in their country and contribute to its future success.
Bring Love In is…
A community of people across the world who are working together to bring love in to the orphans and widows of Ethiopia.
Responding to the biblical call that each of us are made for more.
Will you rise up and be a part of this community? You are wanted here.
