Bole Bulbula CarePoint

Bole Bulbula is located in Bole Sub City, on the north-eastern side of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia’s capital city.

Most of the children attend government schools, though there are some families who do not have the means to send their children to school. The majority of the Bole community has migrated from other regions across Ethiopia. Most community members work in construction, building cobblestone, cleaning homes, washing clothes, and baking injera.

The average daily income does not cover the needed daily consumption of food. Because of this, many suffer from malnutrition. Additionally, cost of living is high, and many families live together with other families transitionally.
With the partnership of the Koelle Jech Connect Community, the children at Bole Bulbula CarePoint have the opportunity to grow physically, spiritually, and emotionally while the Koelle Jech Connect Community also experiences positive transformation!

Empower a Child at Bole Bulbula

Empowering a child is one of the most personal ways that you can make an impact on global poverty. It is more than providing for their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. When you sponsor a child, you build a relationship that shows that child they are valuable, worth loving, and worth investing in.

Your sponsorship is the starting point of a journey that equips vulnerable children, their families, and their communities to create sustainable transformation. When you sponsor a child with HopeChest, you are not just supporting one child — you are helping transform entire communities.

Fund a Project at Bole Bulbula

HopeChest’s approach to alleviating poverty is asset-based, because we believe that in every place on earth there are resources, not only for surviving, but for thriving and succeeding. Local leaders tell us what they do have instead of what they don’t have, and we walk with them to see their vision for their community come to fruition through development projects.

Your meaningful gift to fund a project at Bole Bulbula CarePoint is transformational rather than transactional. It promotes empowerment rather than dependence. Your support for these projects will go a long way as, together, we invest in holistic and sustainable solutions that address the root issues of poverty.
