About Chapa Community

The Chapa community is a rural village near Awassa, Ethiopia. Within the Chapa village we have partnered with Children’s Hopechest as well as the  Hiwot Brihan Church, to change the trajectory of community lives. With thousands of children throughout the village, many in desperate need,  the Chapa Community Center is a place of refuge and hope for many.   We have developed classrooms for education, focus on women’s issues of health and overall wellness,  provide monthly food allotments, discpleship, medical care and so much more.  We have nearly 150 children sponsored which allows them to attend school regulary and within the past three years we have seen remarkable growth among the children and the community as we continue to spend time together returning with teams year after year.
