Esayes Onesimus Feature



We desire to rescue children from the streets of Ethiopia. This process can be short or long depending on each individual child, but much of it takes place at our main ministry location, the drop-in center. The drop-in center is a safe place where children can come off of the streets and receive food, participate in informal education, bathe, and simply play as kids. The center provides Ethiopian team members the chance to develop trust with these children and eventually guide them back to their family.


Rescue, Restore, and Rebuild

Watch Alemayu's Reunion With His Mother, a beautiful success story unfolded for you in the video above:

Alemayu, an 11-year-old boy, was taken from his home in rural Ethiopia when he was 7-years-old to work in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia’s Capital. Seen here is the moment he sees his mother for the first time after being gone for 4 years. Thanks to The Forsaken Children and especially their ground efforts in Ethiopia, Alemayu is now living with his family again.
