Giving a voice to the voiceless
Protecting children is one of Petros Network’s Redemptive Lift strategies for transforming a village.
Child Sponsorship Program
Living on the streets or in reclusion, orphaned and special needs children are vulnerable to trafficking, exploitation and abuse. Often times not able to attend school or receive an education.Working through the local church we have found child sponsorship to be an effective means for alleviating the chronic cycle of poverty and providing children HOPE for a better future. When you sponsor a child your monthly gift of $35 USD provides a child with education, food, clothing, a school uniform and medical care and special needs support as needed, until the child becomes self-sufficient.
Child Sponsorship provides kids with:
MEDICAL & DENTAL
We ensure that all the kids in our program receive annual physicals by licensed professionals.
Thanks to our generous sponsors, the kids in our program have the privilege of going to a good Christian school, giving them hope of a brighter future.
We ensure that the kids in our program have their basic needs such as food, clothes and shelter.

KIDS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS
We have a great need in the community for proper treatment and training in how to support children with disability.
why focus on kids with special needs?
Petros Network is privileged to have Janna Cochran on team who is a special needs and disability services educator.
“As is true in much of the developing world, the plight of the Ethiopian child with special needs can be especially grim. Disability is often seen as a curse, a punishment for wrong-doing or a bad omen. Families are likely to keep children with disabilities at home – hidden away without hope and a future. In rural communities, with resources spread thin, children with disabilities are excluded from the opportunities afforded to their typically developing peers.” Janna Cochran, Field Specialist
