Program "Become a foster parent"

Do you know that with only 1 € per day, you can save the life of a child?
In a simple and easy way, you can save a child’s life, rescue it from the streets, from poverty, hunger and abandonment - even death, offer it the warmth of a hug and take care of all its everyday needs and provide for its education.

As a foster parent you assist an orphan or poor child living in one of the Child Care Centers supported by the Association in collaboration with non-governmental organizations in Ethiopia. This amount (1 € per day or 365 € per year) covers shelter, food, education and medical care.

After receiving the file of the child containing its personal data and photo, you will be regularly informed by the Secretariat of the Association on the child’s general progress. You may establish personal contact with the child by post or by visiting him/her at the Child Care Center where he/she lives.


To initiate the fostering procedure the future foster parents should:
1.    Electronically complete the relevant form. (click here)
2.    Donate the sum of 100 € as a deposit. (click here)
The procedure is completed within a few weeks. Then the foster parent receives the child’s file. The date on which the foster parent receives the file is considered as the official date from which the financial obligations of the foster parent towards the child begin.
