SELaMtA FAMILY PROJECT
In early 2017, we spent 2 weeks with the wonderful staff and forever families of Selamta Family Project. Selamta is a refugee for orphaned and vulnerable children of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Instead of implementing orphanage lifestyle for the children they serve, Selamta has hired marginalized women to be Mothers to 8-10 orphaned children. Each family lives in a home that is in the community and immersed in Ethiopian lifestyle. The moms become true moms. They do not clock in or out, they live 24/7 for the rest of their lives with their new family. Any children these women previously had come to live with them in their Forever Homes and become siblings with the children of Selamta. It truly is beautiful and holistic, where pain is healed over time with the love and care of a forever family.
