Ethiopia is one of the poorest countries in the world. Every eighth child dies before their fifth birthday. Many young girls and women flee from the countryside to the capital, Addis Ababa, to escape poverty, hopelessness and abuse. Without family, they often become lost in the big city, where some fall into prostitution and become pregnant. We are helping single mothers and their children in a slum in northern Addis Ababa by providing free day care. Through this, the mothers can find work and provide for their small families.
