Bete Hosanna (Hosanna House) was birthed, in the dusk of a dirt road in the heart of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, with the most amazing group of 11 orphaned girls. God has provided a vision—a house where eleven 18-year-old girls can now be found laughing, learning, loved, and safe. A house where the primary goal is for each of these girls to have a personal relationship with Jesus. A place where each girl is taught a trade that she can use to advance her future and sustain herself. A home where she is not alone because she has ten sisters and a house mother looking out for her.
Your donations to Bete Hosanna will keep the doors open for 18-year-old orphans in Ethiopia. As these girls are leaving their orphanage, they will have Beta Hosanna, where they can learn a trade to keep them from living on the streets, or worst.
