In Ethiopia, 2 million children have been orphaned by AIDS.

They are redefining their reality – and we can help.

{un.orphan’d} is your opportunity to give an orphaned Ethiopian child the education, counseling, medical care, nutritious food, safe shelter, and skills training needed to build a better future.

A child’s journey out of hopelessness begins the moment your first monthly gift of $40 arrives and continues as you walk alongside through your support. You can be the hope an orphaned child needs today by becoming involved.

Watch "Children of Hope"

Journey with us to Ethiopia’s capital city, Addis Ababa, where an estimated 1 in 5 adults are HIV-positive. The impact on children is staggering – more than 2 million children have been left behind as orphans and many find themselves caught in the same entangling cycle of poverty, the sex trade, and AIDS that took their parents from them. But there is hope. Travel with Lindsey, a UBC student, as she meets the orphans and sex workers whose lives, hopes, dreams, and opportunities are changing – with your help.
