Our purpose is to rescue orphan children that are trapped in extreme poverty,
abandoned, abused, and forced into child labor in the African continent.
There are over 52 million orphans in Africa and a large number live in poverty.
Ethiopia counts one of the largest populations of orphans in the world: 13 per cent of children throughout the country are missing one or both parents. This represents an estimated 4.6 million children – 800,000 of whom were orphaned by HIV/AIDS.
It is estimated half of the children are involved in the worst kind of forced child labor, such as child prostitution, hard labor in mines and stone quarries, etc.
