Ethiopia Well Work Begins

With Ethiopian media and local officials watching, the water drilling team was at Bright Hope School finalizing the well depth measurements. The boring of the well for Bright Hope School will mean safe fresh water for the 2100 children who attend. It also will provide water for the chicken hatchery and garden that will be constructed quickly following the construction of the well.

Ethiopian Soccer Uniform Mountain

Children’s Hope staff was taking inventory today of around 400 complete soccer uniforms that are destined for children in Ethiopia. The Tinely Park Bobcats Soccer League, in Orland Park, Illinois, donated these never worn jerseys, shorts and socks. Impoverished children, many living on the streets of Addis Ababa, will receive these uniforms as part of the Wondimamchoch Church soccer outreach program in the Ethiopian capital. In addition to these 400, there were close to 100 soccer uniform sets that were delivered earlier in the year to another street children soccer ministry. If you would like to help Children’s Hope get these uniforms to Ethiopia, please contact Cory at

Chickens by the Dozen

As the work on the fresh water well continues at the Bright Hope School, it is time to start funding the purchase of chickens, chicken feed, vegetable seed and gardening tools. With the completion of the well, the construction of the three chicken houses and the garden area will begin for the self sustaining mini-farm for the 2100 Bright Hope students and their community. One dozen chicks can be purchased for $35.

Less than $2 per Patient

One of the most effective and satisfying projects for Children’s Hope India partners, is the mobile medical clinic. They set up in an area with no available medical care and watch mothers, with their children, quickly line-up to be seen by a doctor. Medicines are dispersed and even IVs given to those too weak to stand in line.

“Today CHI-India conducted a medical program where nearly 150 children received free medicine and treatment. In the villages, especially in the fishing villages, the children are suffering with many kinds of health problems. As I go to the streets, rural areas very often, I see their difficulties with their health,” said Paparao Yeluchuri.
A mobile medical clinic, like this one held in late August, is made possible for less than $2 per patient.

A Look Inside Bright Hope School

Listen to the passion of the two pastors, during a visit to Bright Hope, while they talk about the potential impact the Bright Hope project will have on the 2100 children at Bright Hope, as well as the community they all live. The work is just now beginning and we will need more people to join in to complete the project.
