PREVENT FAMILIES FROM COLLAPSING
Little Tesfaye was just 4 years old when he entered our Ethiopia Sponsorship program in 2017. Today, Tesfaye and his mom, Kalkidan are also part of a new trauma-informed program where they are learning the importance of connection and care. Month by month AGCI’s team has been helping Kalkidan to learn how to manage her own history of hurt and discover that building connection greatly improves her relationship with Tesfaye. Today she feels joy and pride in her role as a single mother.
PHOTO ABOVE: Kalkidan shares, “Before working with AGCI he did not receive much love from me. Now I show him affection, play with him, and tell him stories. I can tell that he is so happy that our communication has changed and together we have created good conditions in our home—he has become a new child and I have become a new parent.”
You can help a child thrive and stay within their family!
