Woyera Kalihiwot CarePoint is located in Kolfe Keraniyo, which is one of ten sub cities in Addis Ababa, on the far west side of Ethiopia’s capital city limits.

Woyera Kalihiwot Church serves as the location for the CarePoint led by Children’s HopeChest Ethiopia staff. Many of the children in the community suffer from malnutrition due to low family incomes and the parents’ or caregivers’ inability to provide a daily source of nutrition. Additionally, many of these families do not have the ability to provide sufficient clothing, healthcare, or formal education for children.

With the partnership of the Joanna McKinney Connect Community, the children at Woyera Kalihiwot CarePoint have the opportunity to grow physically, spiritually, and emotionally while the Joanna McKinney Connect Community also experiences positive transformation!

Empower a Child at Woyera Kalihiwot

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 Woyera Kalihiwot 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.
