Tesfa’s Kids is a program that launched in 2021 in partnership with Kidus Estifanos, a non-profit based in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. A cohort of students are selected every year based on their family situation and financial status. These students range in age but are currently enrolled in primary school. The students’ school expenses, as well as miscellaneous expenses, are covered every school year until completion of their public school education (grade 12).
We’re happy to welcome the first cohort of Tesfa’s Kids: Liya, Musa,Redeate,Tizita, Tsion, Mesay and Fitsum and thank you for being part of the first cohort of students as a sponsor!
In March of 2022, we were able to sponsor seven additional students: Tariku, Seham, Arsema, Fuad, Mekdes, Kalayu and Kirubel, brining our total of sponsored students to 14.
What is Kidus Estifanos?

1) lost both of their parents
2) have lost one parent or

The non-profit works with children from Burayu Orphanage and the Teklehaimanot Support Center.
