Warancha CarePoint

Warancha School is located in the Awassa region and was established by Hiwot Brihan Church, a large local protestant church in the region.

The school provides an education for over 200 children who are in KG1 and KG2 school levels. The majority of these children do not have access to adequate food supply at home either. The local church aims to provide an education to children beyond the kindergarten level to the fourth grade, as well as provide the children with a meal while they are at school.

With the partnership of the Grace Dahlgren Connect Community, the children at Warancha CarePoint have the opportunity to grow physically, spiritually, and emotionally while the Grace Dahlgren Connect Community also experiences positive transformation!

Empower a Child at Warancha

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 Warancha 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.
