Encourage a Child in Ethiopia

The best way to support a child at our Spring of Hope and New Hope CarePoints is to become a sponsor. But if you cannot afford a $38/month sponsorship, there are still ways your family can get involved to encourage and and show love to a child in Ethiopia. Take a look below.

Become a Pen Pal

The children love receiving letters from sponsors and friends! We know the powerful effect our words can have on a child's heart. We want every child to receive regular encouragement, but some sponsors may never choose to send letters. That's where you can step in and become a pen pal for a child who needs encouragement. Form a true friendship with a specific child we connect with you. 

A pen pal commits to sending at least 3 letters every year to their assigned child. You can send handwritten letters or use our online writing portal

Create a Special Gift

Every year when we visit our CarePoints in Ambo, our team delivers special gifts from all the children's sponsors and friends. This may be a photo album that shows each child some glimpses into our families, country, and culture, or it may be a Care Package filled with fun and practical gifts. 

We want every child to receive a special gift when we visit them! That's why we love inviting volunteers to create these gifts for the children whose sponsors do not participate in these opportunities. 

Sign Up to create a Care Package for a child.

ATTENTION: Due to the current pandemic restrictions on international travel, it's unclear when our team will be able to deliver the next round of Care Packages to Ethiopia. By signing up, you'll be added to our volunteer mailing list and we'll send you more information as soon as the next trip is scheduled!
