Our first priority is to supply basic needs to the orphans so they can not only survive but thrive.
75% of the child’s monthly stipend go toward food, clothing and shelter. The appointed guardian receives a portion of these funds to provide for the child.
We make sure the basic needs of the children are being met through the guidance of a social worker and an oversight committee of 12 community members that visit each child’s household each week. The social worker talks with each child and addresses any issues they may have.
Outreach Ethiopia provides each child clothing for the year. This includes one (1) set of the government mandated school uniform, one (1) set of plain clothes and one (1) pair of shoes.
We believe when the children’s’ basic needs are met, they are able to focus on their education, which will allow them to provide for themselves in the future.
