Our Mission

Here at Blessing the Children, we minister to orphans and widows in the town of Bishoftu, 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 three-fold purpose:

  1. Sponsorship of Ethiopia’s Children
  2. The education of children
  3. Being National (Ethiopian) Driven

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 three-fold purpose.

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

Life Sponsorship

Bemenet is a wonderful girl with big dreams! She would love to be an athlete, representing her country, as a runner. For now, she lives with her mother and her four siblings. Her father currently lives in the capital Addis Ababa, about forty-five minutes away from his family. He is a former soldier who was injured severely by a bullet wound, resulting in permanent damage. At the recommendation of his doctor, when his camp moved to Addis Ababa, he moved with the base so he could be better cared for. Bemenet’s parents met while her father was in the military rehabilitation camp, healing from his injury. The whole family lives off of two hundred ninety-four birr a month, about eleven US dollars. Bemenet is a daughter who helps however she can: specifically, by cleaning the house and washing the dishes.

Your sponsorship has the ability to greatly impact Bemenet and that of her entire family. Would you consider partnering with her by supporting her dreams and family through sponsorship?  If so, click here to contact us and/or find out more information.

Find out how you can save this beautiful girl, and others, through our Life Sponsorship program!
