Trees of Glory CarePoint

Located 40 miles south of Addis Ababa, in Wuchale Woreda, Ethiopia, Trees of Glory is on approximately 27 acres and has 13 buildings.

The property was previously used by a Japanese construction company several years ago, and was being held for an Indian concrete company. Semeret Mengesha, a former government employee, appealed to the local government, who gave her the property to use as a drop-in center/school. Government officials decided to give the property to Semeret, because she was willing to utilize it for the betterment of the children living in the community of Duber. Semeret has a large vision for the property.

Many of the children here have lost both of their parents. A majority of people living in this area are on subsistence income and live below the poverty line, having nothing on which to survive. They cannot afford the basic elements for life including accessing basic social services like health, education, and housing.

With the partnership of the Karen Winstrom Connect Community, the children at Trees of Glory CarePoint have the opportunity to grow physically, spiritually, and emotionally while the Karen Winstrom Connect Community also experiences positive transformation!

Empower a Child at Trees of Glory

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 Trees of Glory 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.
