Life Sponsorship Program
We believe that in order to break the cycle of poverty in a child’s life, meeting basic needs, providing education, and empowering the community are key. Children enrolled in this program attend a Blessing the Children School and are provided with food, books, uniforms, school supplies, and healthcare. This program aims to follow the children all the way through university graduation. If you would like to meet the kids or get involved, click the link below to get started with Blessing the Children Canada or Blessing the Children International.
The Annual Meals Project
This project is made possible by Fraser Valley Gleaners in British Columbia, Canada. They are a nonprofit who collects, processes, and packages vegetables to send to countries needing food.
Blessing the Children Canada partners with FV Gleaners and our donors to send a 40-foot container every year since 2017. Each container carries about 1,000 boxes of bagged dehydrated vegetables that can be made into stew for our communities.
It costs about $20 000 CAD (600,000 Birr) to send one container. This project provides one million nutritious meals to the community of Bishoftu.
The Water Well Project
This project aims to raise funds to build a water well in Bishoftu. Currently the community it will belong to is severely deprived of clean water. It is our hope to raise $30 000 by 2021 to build this well.
