About Ethiopian Child



Uplifting Downtrodden Children and Families




Ethiopian Child is a 501(c)(3) non profit corporation dedicated to helping  disadvantaged children and youth in Ethiopia.

In the Spring of 2007 Rebecca and Vernon Blitch, her father Charles Brown and niece Larissa journeyed to Ethiopia to meet two deaf orphans and bring them to their “forever” home in the US. In Ethiopia they fell in love with the beautiful, poverty stricken children, and although they are a family of modest means determined to help. “Ethiopian Child”  is the result.

Ethiopian Child makes periodic visits to Ethiopia and teams with others to make life better for impoverished children and “challenged” older people.

    Hi, I was pleased to learn about your blog, from my friend and business partner, Fitsame Teferra. Fitsame, an Addis native, is also involved in adoption work, and has published several children’s books in both Amharic and English. I am her American distributor for several titles. We both reach out to adoption groups or people doing adoption work, because we believe our books provide good, positive role models for Ethiopian-American children. The protagonists, language, and culture build self-esteem and are relatable to children who come from diverse backgrounds. If you are interested in carrying “Counting Addis Ababa,” or “Little Lion’s Bedtime,” please let me know and I can send you some sample copies and a wholesale price sheet. Thanks, and continued luck with your work. — Ian, SLP team
