Tesfa’s Kids is a program that launched in 2021 in partnership with Kidus Estifanos, a non-profit based in Addis Ababa. 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!
Kidus Estifanos works with children who have 1) lost both their parents, 2) have lost one parent or 3) are living in dire circumstances. The non-profit works with children from Burayu Orphanage and the Teklehaimanot Support Center.
- Children from Burayu Orphanage: Provide full support for children including school expenses, healthcare expenses, clothing, etc.
- Children from Teklehaimanot Support Center: Assist students with their school expenses, including tutoring services, personal hygiene, healthcare and miscellaneous family assistance.
Of the many kids Kidus Estifanos works with, Tesfa selects a cohort of children who are in high-need of assistance.
