About Morning Light

Morning Light shares the gospel and meets the tangible needs of impoverished women and children by providing child education, helping empower women, and bringing health services to the needy. Over 200 widows, single mothers, and orphans in the slums outside of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, benefit from their tutoring classes for impoverished children and women’s self-help groups. Along with these activities, the beneficiaries receive need-based support as short-term or one-time gifts.

Children are given healthy meals, medical care, school supplies, clothing, and tutoring assistance to ensure impoverished kids can thrive. Women participate in income-generating activities to support their families and escape poverty. Single mothers receive food to meet the nutritional needs of their children. Morning Light also raises awareness regarding key social-political issues impacting women in the community.

Morning Light holds a two-month summer camp for children with games, sports, and biblical truth each summer. Additionally, students can participate in a new five-day program combining sports with Bible lessons.

About Ethiopia

Ethiopia borders Eritrea, Somalia, Djibouti, Kenya, Sudan, and South Sudan. Although it is the largest and most populated country in the Horn of Africa, it remains one of the poorest in the world.

Many single mothers in Ethiopia struggle financially to be able to feed their children and send them to school. Employment can make a life-changing difference in the life of a family.
