Visit Your Child



One of the passions of Blessing the Children is for life sponsors and children to connect.  We at the office try to paint a picture for you of your child’s life but nothing speaks louder than to see the situation first hand.  It doesn’t take long once the child enters our program for the change to take place.

We encourage life sponsors to spend time with your child at their home, in a restaurant, taking them shopping, at school or helping them with their chores. What we want is for you to understand the life that they are living and how you can encourage and help them. One of our greatest privileges is to see them come to Jesus which means you can have that spiritual impact and share Jesus with them as you spend time with them and their family!

During your trip, you can choose to stay at a guesthouse with modern conveniences or if you would rather have a vacation we can make arrangements with one of the local hotels or resorts to accommodate you. Prices vary according to your wishes.

Come and connect with your child and we are sure you will have a life changing experience!


Send a Gift

Many times we have sponsors who for various reasons are unable to go themselves, but we do not want this to be a barrier to you interacting with your sponsor child! If you have a gift that you would like to send please send it with the following address and notation:

Your Sponsor Child’s Name
In care of: Dawit Moges with
Blessing the CHildren Development Organization
P.O Box 1465
Bishoftu, East Shoa
Telephone: 251-91-149-1001

If you have any further questions please be sure to let us know so we can assist you!

What kind of gifts are a great idea to send you may wonder? Great Question! Some suggestions are a picture of you and your family, a picture of snow, some things with the Candian flag on them like the dollar store bottle openers- they are frequently used as all pop comes in glass bottles! Just be mindful that if you send pictures, we do ask that they are not pictures of your expensive things as a courtesy to a poor family who does not have much access to luxury. Below are some other suggestions! (Please note that below are estimated costs. We have noticed inflation rates increasing which has driven up prices of things in the last few years.)
