YWAM Mercy Development Feeding Center

Into the Streets of Ethiopia would like to introduce you to some new friends!

Into the Streets of Ethiopia began a partnership with YWAM Mercy Development in February 2011.  Through the generosity of faithful Into the Streets supporters, we have successfully funded 100 % of the Mercy Development Feeding Center Project {a community-based outreach to the streets of Addis Ababa} for the last 8 months. This project is designed to benefit street children between the ages of 6-15.  Objectives of this project include (but are not limited to):
  • The identifying of 20 vulnerable children (who do not receive support elsewhere) that would greatly benefit from the support of this program.
  • Provide spiritual training.
  • Provide a balanced, nutritious meal at lunch 5 times per week.
  • Clothing {school uniforms and shoes} in addition to school fees and equipment needed.
  • Emergency medical care.
  • Holiday gifts.
***We are happy to report that 17 of the 20 students passed their latest exams with flying colors!  It's amazing how a brain can function properly with a full tummy!***

If you would like more information about this project or you would be interested in helping Into the Streets of Ethiopia fund the 2011-12 year, please contact us at PORTILLA@INTOTHESTREETSOFETHIOPIA.COM.
