Holeta CarePoint is located approximately thirty miles west of the capital city, Addis Ababa.
Within this small rural community, poor farming systems have contributed to lack of nutrition. Unemployment continues to rise as families and individuals migrate to Holeta without work available. Many within the community work as daily labors, providing a meager income that is barely enough to sustain their families. Furthermore, common living conditions are congested and desperate as families cram into small rented homes that are in dire need of repairing.
In addition to these risk factors, the number of orphaned children in the area continues to increase due to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Education is a far reach for orphaned children, as well as children whose parents cannot afford a basic uniform or school supplies required at government schools.
With the partnership of Potter’s Clay Fellowship, the children at Holeta CarePoint have the opportunity to grow physically, spiritually, and emotionally while the Potter’s Clay Fellowship community also experiences positive transformation!

Empower a Child at Holeta
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.
Story of Impact from Ethiopia
This Woman is Liberating Women and Families from Domestic Violence in Ethiopia
Dana Owens / March 8, 2020
Happy International Women’s Day! This year we are highlighting Ayni, who leads I Care for the Nation CarePoint in Ethiopia. Ayni has fiercely followed the calling that God placed on her heart to liberate women and families from domestic violence, despite facing incredible amounts of opposition.
Start a Fundraiser for Holeta
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.
A fundraiser for Holeta 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.
