Education/Women’s Empowerment | We partner with Children’s Hopechest and indegenous leaders in the village of Chapa, Ethiopia to empower and educate children through sponsorship, community development and skills training of local women to eliminate families from poverty and preventing orphans.
Prevention/Economic Empowerment | We partner with No Ordinary Love Ministries to assist in the rescue, restoration and reunification of displaced and trafficked children. Women are also assisted with training and grants for start up companies allowing them freedom from the streets. Emmanual House exists to house children being counseled and educated while social workers search for the loved ones from which they have been displaced.
Every child needs a safe place to learn and grow. Poverty breeds the displacement and migration of children. No where is that more true than the streets of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Make Your Mark exists to provide a holistic approach to see children and families succeed in the areas of education, physical and spiritual health, emotional stability and self-sustainability.
Adoption/ Refugee Awareness | We strive to educate others on the various programs here in Grand Rapids, Michigan and beyond to assist children waiting through foster care and the refugee support program.
