Yezelalem Minch ensures that children can attend school by covering school fees and providing uniforms and school supplies. For the youngest children, YZM runs a preschool in both Addis Ababa and Holeta. Older children who choose to attend vocational school or university can continue to receive support from Yezelalem Minch until they finish their degree. A gift to this fund will help Yezelalem Minch keep children in school through graduation.
Give in honor of someone you know, and we’ll send them a card!
Yezelalem Minch (“YZM”) is an Ethiopian-led non-government organization providing comprehensive, community-based care for over 1,300 orphaned and vulnerable children. Most of these children are living with a single impoverished parent, grandparent, extended family member, or even a sibling. YZM works to preserve families by helping to meet children’s physical, educational, emotional, and spiritual needs. The program operates in several communities in the capital city of Addis Ababa, as well as nearby suburb towns in the Oromia region, Holeta and Sebeta.
You can sponsor a child at YZM for $30/month (as a primary sponsor) or $60/month (as a full sponsor). We will send you a physical sponsor packet with your child’s printed photo, and you’ll also receive written letters from your child 2-3 times per year. Sponsorship allows these children get the support they need to stay with their family or guardian, and just as importantly, helps communicate to them that they are loved and valued!
