WE BELIEVE CHILDREN BELONG IN FAMILIES

Hope for the Fatherless is partnering with believers in Ethiopia and around the world to develop a culture that values and cares for vulnerable children and places them into loving families. 

THE CRISIS

More than 5.6 million children in Ethiopia are missing one or both of their parents.  In 2018, inter-country adoption was banned, but there is not yet a strong culture of domestic foster care or adoption. 

THE CYCLE

These vulnerable children often end up trapped in institutional care..

Those aging out of orphanages are at extremely high risk for unplanned pregnancies. Often the resulting child will end up abandoned in an orphanage, continuing the cycle. 

THE SOLUTION

Orphaned and vulnerable children should be placed into FAMILIES through: 

Reunification

Kin-ship Placement 

Domestic Adoption

Small Group Homes

DOMESTIC ADOPTION

Through partnership with Bethany Global, HFTF places children from our transition home, Faith House,  into forever families through domestic adoption. Adoption is open to married Ethiopian citizens over the ages 25-65 who reside in Ethiopia. Click the link below to send an email inquiry.
