Stories of Transformed Lives

For over a decade, Transformation Love has been transforming the lives of children who were living in extreme poverty in Ethiopia. By demonstrating the love of Christ to these children and their families, they now can live productive, hope filled lives. These are just a few of their stories.

Hiwot was one of the first children sponsored. Her mother died from AIDS. Hiwot, took the place of mom and raised her 2 siblings, while still finishing school. With the support of her sponsor, she went on to college to become a nurse. Now she is a fulltime nurse at the ALERT hospital. She is married and has a baby boy. She is still seeing that Shewaye finishes college, who is studying business, and Fikadu finishes school. We are proud of her success.

Hanna joined us about one year after we started working in Addis Ababa. She studied hard and always was a delight to be around. Her mom joined our staff and is the right arm of our ministry, keeping in touch with all of our families. Hanna is always there to give a helping hand when needed, and is our records clerk in the Ethiopia office. Hanna finished high school and went on to college, thanks to her sponsor. She graduated from college this year with an accounting degree. We are so proud of her and love her so much.
