Empower Children to Pull out of the Cycle of Poverty
Lelt Foundation in New York, NY 10025 by Anja Wood
Kara Kore is one of the poorest neighborhoods in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The Lelt Foundation has started a sponsorship program that enables children who were either laboring or too sick to attend school to receive nutrition, tutoring, counseling, and tuition support so they can go to school and pull out of the cycle of poverty. The children's families are given micro-farm training to teach them the skills to start their own poultry or vegetable business, and generate their own income.

We have over 60 students thriving in our daily tutoring and lunch programs, and many of their parents have started their own backyard farms in our Business Start Up Program. The Repi Boys’ Home was just opened in June to house abandoned and abused children, and our Community Center is a daily refuge for the families of Kara Kore.
