What Makes Elevate Orphan Child Sponsorship Different?
- We believe that children thrive best when they are part of a stable family unit that includes a home and a loving parent
- The children that Elevate Orphan adopts from orphanages do not have much hope for a future in Ethiopian Society
- As a result, Elevate Orphan provides each child with a Forever Family
Elevate Orphan is a ministry serving both the Orphans and the Widows. It is entirely managed by Ethiopians for Ethiopians! We adopt children from the Government Orphanages in Addis Ababa into our single-family homes consisting of mothers and aunties. The prospects for those children that remain in these Government Orphanages are very bleak. Sexual abuse, prostitution, drug addiction and extreme poverty is the normal future for these children who remain in the system.
We create “Forever Families” for these children and provide them with excellent private school education, social work, christian psychologist and counselors. We see them grow to go to universities and/or trade schools. We also help them grow spiritually in loving Jesus as we believe that Ethiopian believers impact Ethiopia for The Kingdom of God.
We Believe That
- Every believer has been called by God to do good works.
- That The Lord will call those who He Wills to come alongside us in doing the eternally significant work of His Kingdom for the widows and orphans that our Ministry serves
- That The Lord will continue to bless this ministry with both the material and Spiritual fruit that only He can provide
- All Glory is His! Hallelujah!!
- A single-family home rented by Elevate Orphan in a cluster of homes that form our Elevate Orphan community within Addis Ababa
- A house mom and aunt, which are two widows from local churches
- 4-6 children per home
- Every child is given a high-quality private school education
- Social workers, psychologists and a learning center with a library, computer lab, activities center and a workshop
- All children are supported from elementary through college or trade school

Summer Missions 2022
We are traveling to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on a summer mission trip to meet and serve the children, mothers, aunties, and staff at Elevate Orphan.
We plan to run a VBS for the younger children and engage the older children at the learning center with activities such as playing musical instruments, art, sewing, cooking, crafts, photography, sewing and soccer. This is a trip to encourage and live alongside those at Elevate Orphan!

Counseling & Social Work
Through Christian psychologists, social workers and counsellors, we help the children deal with any early childhood trauma due to the circumstances that made them orphans.
Ensuring children live in a supportive family environment, full educational learning, access to justice and protection from violence, abuse and exploitation.
Every child deserves a bright future
With our broad network of relationships, we can enable the children with jobs, vocational schools and housing as native born Ethiopians and long-standing residents of Addis Ababa and of The Body of Christ in Addis.
Building "Forever Families"
Orphan children join single Family Homes in Addis where each home has a ‘Mother’ and ‘Auntie’. Widows and Aunties are screened and selected by Elevate staff from Local churches.
Prayer, social workers/counselors and Elevate staff evaluate each candidate for optimal placement. Our team has strong relationships with the leadership at several Ethiopian Churches who identify widows as candidates.
