Kidmia is an advocate for the fatherless and families in Ethiopia. We lead the way in progressive models of indigenous orphan care in partnership with the local church, providing the basics of life we all long for: family, nutrition, education, health care, sustainability, hope. We both create new families through adoption and ensure that existing families have a chance to remain intact, not having to make the impossible and unjust decision of which children they can afford to keep.
In Amharic, the language of Ethiopia, kidmia means priority. Our priority is the orphaned and vulnerable children of this rich and beautiful nation. We empower families to prevent kids from becoming orphans, we reunify orphaned children with extended family, and we facilitate local adoptions to provide an orphaned child with a forever family and a home.
