Why Hope for the Hopeless

When you give to Hope for the Hopeless, 100% of the sponsorship goes to the in-Country costs of Ethiopia. You heard it right - 100%. We have a team of private donors and volunteers who pay our administrative/operating costs here in the US, so when you  sponsor you can rest assured that your entire gift will go towards changing the life of a child in Ethiopia!

Donations can be one-time or reoccurring

Why Hope for the Hopeless

Hope for the Hopeless is committed to caring for abandoned and orphaned street children in Ethiopia who have lost their parents & families due to death, disease, or poverty.
Some of these children have family, but they are unable to feed, clothe or provide them with shelter and some are fleeing abuse. All of these children are at risk of violence & exploitation. 
For over two decades, sponsors, supporters, and volunteers join with Ethiopian staff to rescue these street children, to rehabilitate them with transitional and institutional care, and return them to a healthy and stable environment in which they can grow and flourish.
