I Care for the Nation CarePoint

I Care for the Nation (ICFTN) CarePoint is located in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, and was founded to help support orphaned and vulnerable children and their families.

The breakup of families and HIV/AIDS are two significant factors in the high number of orphaned and vulnerable children living on the street in Addis without access to regular food, healthcare, and education. Children often leave their hometowns for larger cities due to the stigma associated with these two factors. ICFTN hopes to come alongside these children and their families to not only meet these needs but also cultivate holistic transformation and sustainability.

With the partnership of Summit Church of Central Florida, the children at ICFTN CarePoint have the opportunity to grow physically, spiritually, and emotionally while the Summit Church of Central Florida community also experiences positive transformatio

Empower a Child at I Care for the Nation

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.

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 I Care for the Nation 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.
