Our vision is to develop a new generation of responsible youth who will bring transformation to their families and
communities by living compassionate and Godly lives, passionately sharing Jesus Christ with those around them.
To help children, youth and their families to come to Christ and to grow in their faith as we meet their spiritual and physical needs.
How We Accomplish Our Mission:
- Praying for the children, youth, and their families.
- Going to where they are to minister to them in their own cultural environment.
- Distributing food, clothes, and other household needs.
- Helping to provide adequate housing by assisting with repairs or reconstruction of their very old and dilapidated homes.
- Assisting children to attend school by providing payment for school fees, uniforms, and supplies.
- Offering informal school for those younger children who are unable to attend local schools.
- Providing assistance to children, youth, and families to obtain medical care and medications.
- Helping them develop their skill and build hope that will help them reach their full God given potential.
- Using sports as a means to engage in the lives of children and young people.
- Family Outreach
The Family Outreach program seeks to discover the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of very
poor families and to meet those needs in Jesus name.
- Family Based Child Care
The Family Based Child program visits children in their homes to discover their needs for continuing
healthy development. Needs that are met include providing additional food, clothing, or helping to enroll
in school, or to receive appropriate medical attention.
- High School Gatherings
The High School program provides off campus Bible studies and other training that seeks to disciple
young people, developing their spiritual lives and leadership skills during these important formative years
of their lives.
- Students Contact
The student contact program is an effort to connect with students in their school communities where we
can begin the process of building relationships, expressing care and concern for them. Through the contacts
young people are invited to the High School Gatherings where they will meet with other students, interact
with caring youth workers and be exposed to the message of the Gospel.
- Hang Out
“Hang Out” is an opportunity to talk to young people in an environment that is comfortable for them where
we can discover their interest and discuss critical social issues affecting their lives - family relationship,
continuing education, and creating work opportunity. In these intimate discussion times we are often able to
offer spiritual answers to the challenging questions of their lives.
- HIV-AIDS Education
With the growing prevalence of HIV-AIDS, it is critical that we confront this increasing challenge among young
people. In the HIV-AIDS program professional people are invited to teach the young people about this mounting
problem and to help them to discover workable solutions from a social, physical and spiritual perspective.
About PeterWondwossen (Peter) Abera:
I was born on the 21st of April 1974 in the region of North Showa in the north part of Ethiopia and grew up there, among a people who work
very hard for their basic survival. With my one brother and three sisters I was raised in an Orthodox family, attended Orthodox school, and
at around sixteen years of age I came to know Christ through a World Vision feeding center project in our village. Always aware there was
a greater spiritual Being, I was keenly interested in this person Jesus that the World Vision workers kept talking about. After trying to
refuse the invitation I finally confessed my sins to Christ and asked Him to be Lord of my life.
Upon completing High School I went to the Evangelical Theological College and then on to Admas University where I graduated in
General Management. My goal is to use these newly acquired skills to serve God. I served for six years in Combolch Wollo, near
my home area as evangelist and soloist. For the past seven years I have been involved in ministry reaching youth in the city of
Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia
My desire is to develop a new generation of responsible youth who will bring transformation to their families and communities by living
compassionate and Godly lives, passionately sharing Jesus Christ with those around them.
