AGCI’s Ethiopia Education Sponsorship Program

AGCI’s education sponsorship program is different—we’re not just enabling children to pursue their education, we’re also preserving families and helping to break the devastating cycle of poverty. AGCI is on the ground, in rural villages seeking to support the children who have lost everything. All of the children in our education program are orphans – they have lost one or both parents and many live with extended family that struggle to survive. Many of the children in our Ethiopia Education Sponsorship program are also members of child-headed households.
