Holt Ethiopia took a moment to say thank you to Holt sponsors who support children in their programs. As Ethiopia weathers challenges like instability and inflation, they want sponsors to know that their support is bringing health and joy to children in our programs!
I would like to express my deepest gratitude for your support. You positively impact the life of your sponsored child and many other needy children and families in our communities. Without your act of generosity, Holt Ethiopia’s programs would not have been as successful. Your sponsorship support helped provide these five child and family-centered programs in 2022:
• Economic Empowerment: Thousands of families were able to grow their income through the provision of livestock, seed money and other resources such as trainings to improve their financial management skills. With educational material supports for their children, nutrition and health insurance supports, families became stronger and better equipped to provide for their children.
• Primary and High School Education: Children received holistic educational materials, school supplements, reference books, summer classes, water, sanitation and hygiene facilities and special trainings for their teachers.
• Early Childhood Care and Development: Thousands of children were reached through Holt’s support to help the local government expand preschool education in government-run schools. And with your support, hundreds of children successfully completed the preschool education cycle and started formal schooling .
• Maternal & Child Health: Thousands of infants and young children received intensive care services. Hundreds of thousands of children and adults benefited from extended health services.
• Child Care and Support: Children received institutional care, foster care and group home services. Hundreds of children and their siblings were supported through community-based sponsorship services.
Alongside our local partners, you helped to create beautiful memories and fun times for your sponsored child and thousands of other children. You made possible special events such as International Children’s Day, International Literacy Day and Global Handwashing Day. You also sponsored school-related events like “Welcome Back to School” and summer learning camp. These special events not only honored the children in the community, they were a perfect opportunity to pass important health and safety messages to the children and families.
“Through my field visits, I am always impressed with how the children and families are glad to be included in Holt’s programs and how they love participating in every activity. “
People like you are the reason that Holt has been able to successfully support thousands of needy children and families. Because of the heart like yours, those children are able to access school and health services. They can also remain with their birth families without the risk of separation. Through my field visits, I am always impressed with how the children and families are glad to be included in Holt’s programs and how they love participating in every activity.
Your acts of kindness kept our staff motivated. You helped us push through challenging times like market inflation and political instability throughout the year. Through you, the Holt Ethiopia staff and I will keep making the most of our God-given opportunity and keep changing the lives of many needy children and families. We remain committed to helping children and families realize their full potential and experience a good life in every way. They could not have dreamed of this life without your act of generosity. We could not be more thankful!
