Hope for Korah seeks to loosen the yoke of extreme poverty, bringing hope to families, widows, orphans, and lepers living in Korah, the city garbage dump area in Addis Ababa.
Our purpose is to keep families together & healthy. Using a holistic approach, we seek to act towards breaking the cycle of urban poverty through the love and compassion of Christ; offering hope and a future so that families can come to know their inherent worth, meet their full potential, live with dignity, become self-reliant, actively participate and advocate within their community, serve others and in turn, bring long-term sustainable change to the Korah community at large.
We are committed to serving and empowering the people of Korah and we do so through partnership with Hope for Korah Ethiopian staff. Our desire is to come alongside these Ethiopian leaders, the Korah community and local government supporting them in their vision & dreams for their people.
We seek to live out our values of sustainability and cultural competency. To achieve this, HFK dedicates its efforts to an attainable and permanent strategy through our collaboration with our Ethiopian staff on the ground. All HFK programs are administered through Hope for Korah Ethiopia. Many of these staff live within the Korah community. They include our Country director, Economic Empowerment Officer, Education Empowerment Officer, as well as multiple social workers, youth workers, administration staff, nurses, tutors, teachers, caregivers, daycare nannies, cleaners, cooks, and guards. We also partner with a local counselling agency to enhance the psycho-social supports available for those within our programs.
All that we do centers around holistic care and the process of transformational development, which we believe can impact the entire community through respecting the inherent worth of each person being made in God’s image and empowering them physically, psychologically, economically, socially, and spiritually.
