Message from the Founders

Message from the Founders

Save the Children of Abraham Charity Association was founded on May 17, 2010. As the name implies, the purpose of the organization was to rescue Abraham’s descendants, or descendants of Israeli. This is a charity founded by the children of the Abraham community in Ethiopia, who have little access to education and many who do not go to school.
I was the founder and first manager of this organization. My main goal at the time was to establish this association and to meet the basic needs of this association. It was also about running the organization according to its intended purpose and goal.

When I started this organization, I was greatly helped by Pastor Yemane, who was the pastor of Bet-Abraham Messianic Congregation. Perhaps without his good and honest cooperation, the organization could not have become legal. Because I have been able to keep this charitable organization legal by providing an office in this faith institution, budgeting for various expenses, including paperwork, in the process of legalizing it.

Although there were many founding members and individuals who were involved in the legal establishment of this organization at the time, I cannot name all of them now, as it is difficult for me to list each one. In all, there were about eighteen or more members. The list of members of the Bet-Abraham Messianic Congregation, whom we called at the time, is on the record, as the number of members had to be met at the beginning of this process.

I served in this charity for three years, starting from May 17, 2010, up to the end of 2013. During these years, we were so moved by the idea that all children should go to school; that we first assessed the situation of the children and their parents and recruited four children to attend school. In a very fast pace, we recruited fifteen children and got into a lot of works.

We provided four types of regular assistance to these students. Our provision includes rice, flour, sugar and soap. I also remember that we used to help around 225 birr per child to cover the various expenses of the students. Another service was to pay teachers and provide tutoring for the students. We were motivated by the fact that there were many reasons why students in the kechene area could not continue their education, so that they would not drop out of school and get into unnecessary living. Not only the students of Save the Children of Abraham Charity Association who participated in this tutorial program, but also students from the local community attended. As a result, a great love of learning has been instilled in students’ psychology.

The biggest challenge we faced at the time was the disagreement with our donors. Often, those who wanted to donate to the NGO did not want to donate money directly to our organization, but wanted the church to pass it on to us in advance. This was because they thought that the office system in NGO was a bit complicated. This was a major challenge for us to keep up with our work.

Finally, I know that the Save the Children of Abraham Charity Association is now in good shape. Next to me was our brother Solomon. Next to us is our sister Rachel. I know the charity is still doing well. But my message is that there is a community that is affected by education problem, especially in kechene and its environs, in the scattered Israeli community in Ethiopia. Because its purpose is to ensure that children are free to pursue their education without any psychological harm and that they benefit the family, the community, the country, and even the world.
