Since 2011, Embracing Hope has been showing the love of God in word and deed among the poorest of the poor – primarily women and young children in the Kore’ slum of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
Embracing Hope now partners with over 250 poor families typically making less than $1 per day, in order to see orphans prevented and families preserved. Embracing Hope uses holistic methods including a comprehensive childcare center, education, food & clothing supplementation, medical care, job training, microloans, and spiritual care.
In 2018, Embracing hope will take steps to expand programs into Turkey to work among poor moms and children, especially those from refugee families.
