Our Mission

Here at Blessing the Children, we minister to orphans and widows in the town of Debre Zeyit, Ethiopia, Africa; assisting with various projects of Blessing the Children Development Organization, an Ethiopian based non-government organization.

Blessing the Children Canada’s mission is to improve the lives of orphans, widows, and impoverished families in Ethiopia; meeting physical, mental, social, and spiritual needs through Life Sponsorship, an Academy, and our Income for Life Program. We believe children must have their basic human needs met in order to have improved economic opportunities and quality of life.

We invite you to join us as we strive to build up Ethiopian orphans, working together as individuals from various backgrounds to bring change to the world in this Kingdom endeavor. We hope that you fall in love with the people of Ethiopia as we have, and are encouraged to take advantage of the many opportunities to get involved.


Blessing the Children Canada is a sister organization to Blessing the Children International (BCI) and Blessing the Children Development Organization (BCDO).

Blessing the Children Canada (BCC) exists for the sole purpose of resourcing Blessing the Children Development Organization in Ethiopia (BCDO) towards their two-fold purpose:

1. Sponsorship of Ethiopia’s orphans
2. The education of children.

Resourcing BCDO may take different forms including, but not limited to, finances, personnel, on- or off-site training, literary works, and consultations. All BCC vision-casting, decisions, and actions will be made for the benefit of BCDO and in the interest of its two-fold purpose.

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

Life Sponsorship

SAM_0538From the outside Tsedenya is a beautiful girl who loves to draw. Yet, ever since she was just six month old she has had a tough life. It was at the young age of six months when she began having signs of chronic epilepsy. Since then Tsedenya has been fighting for her life. On top of that Tsedenya’s father passed away leaving Tsedenya’s mother to care for three children. Tsedenya’s mother works as a janitor in a local Red Cross office and although her income of 1000 Ethiopian birr (about $50 USD) is better than most families, it does not cover Tsedenya’s treatment or the families living expenses. Tsedenya loves to play soccer and her favorite color is red
