Yenege Tesfa

Our name means Hope for Tomorrow. Our mission is to provide Gondar’s orphans and vulnerable children with a happy family life. A home, education, good health and a bright future.


What We Do

We provide 5 Happy Homes for 80 children and School Support for 910 kids. Not only that, we provide Child Day Care, Learning Centres, Community Development, Micro-Finance, Agricultural skills and a Mobile School.


About Us

Yenege Tesfa was born in 2001 out of the philosophy that homeless and parentless children deserve a better life.

Home for Tomorrow

There are still over 800 children sleeping on the streets of Gondar every night, some as young as 6 years old. We need regular donations totalling €195 per week to give 17 of the most vulnerable children a home.
