SELAMTA FAMILY PROJECT
The Selamta Family Project is a Christian ministry providing a home for some of Ethiopia’s four million children who have been orphaned by poverty and AIDS. Since 2005, Selamta has been creating new, stable and life-long families for these forgotten little ones. Eleven family homes have been established near Addis Ababa, consisting of a permanent mother, 8-10 children, and an employed “auntie” who provides household support to the family. Selamta is a unique and successful model, and their mission is to grow into a platform for positive change throughout Ethiopia, Africa and beyond.
Youth Impact is a Christian outreach to the destitute orphan and marginalized children and teenagers in Ethiopia with the love of God in order for them to have faith, character, skills and become productive citizens of their nation.
Youth Impact currently operates in three rented houses, mentoring street boys, orphan girls and boys, and also runs a library in a poor section of Addis Ababa in order to help the young develop the habit of reading and academic excellence.
Their goal is to mentor 272 marginalized young men and women over the next three years. The program will also offer library services 70 to 80 young students daily. 45 malnourished students will be provided with one nourishing meal a day. Youth Impact also supports the marginalized poor with shelter, food, clothing, education and medical needs.

YOUNG LIFE, AFRICA
Young Life introduces adolescents to Jesus Christ and helps them grow in their faith. Africa is a continent of young people with over 75% of the population of sub-Sahara Africa under the age of 25.
Since launching in Africa a little over a decade ago, Young Life has grown rapidly, reaching over 230,000 kids in a growing number of African countries. This happens one child at a time. An African proverb teaches the “slow way is the fast way” and that proverb has guided our vision for reaching every kid in every country in Africa.
