The Difference a Bit of Caring Makes – Sentayehu and Edelawit

What a difference you are making through family sponsorships for families such as Sentayehu and her daughter Edelawit.

When Sentayehu came to EHE in the Fall of 2015 she was very discouraged.  While she was educated to Grade 9, as a young mother she had no options.  She was trying to do some work with Edelawit with her, but it meant that she could not make enough money to provide.  She was relying on others to try to help her make it.  They were struggling and she had little hope.  Without intervention, their family was not going to make it.

Here is her original profile video.

EHE’s intervention for this family is simple. Provide Early Childhood Education. Free Mom up to work.  Provide Health Care. Provide 3 meals and a snack everyday to boost nutrition. Provide Social Work. Provide Community. Provide some Basic Needs. Provide Micro-savings. Provide Adult Education. Take the burden off of Mom in an individualised way while nurturing a child in a holistic way.

Providing the love of Jesus in practical ways for both Mom and child.

Today there is a huge difference for Sentayehu and Edelawit.  Sentayehu is working as a cleaner, but she also has chosen to go back to school!!  She is able to again make education a priority.  And Edelawit is growing, walking, running and getting a good early education.   She is safe and being nurtured every day.  And best of all she gets to spend her evenings at home with Mom!
Here is the latest update on Sentayehu and Edelawit.


Dignity is being restored to this family one step at a time and it is making a world of difference! This family is being preserved and Sentayehu is so grateful!

But we need your help. For families such as Sentayehu and Edelawit, we took them into the project without sponsors in place. It is how we always do it – we invite families in, trusting that God will speak into the hearts of folks to sponsor them long term. Is God speaking to you today?
Would you partner with us through family sponsorship for families like Sentayehu’s as well as others?
