Esther's Aid for Needy and Abandoned Children
Esther's Aid for Needy and Abandoned Children is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to its primary mission to respond to the need of children orphaned by war, genocide and HIV/AIDS. Esther’s Aid provides children and youth with tools for a productive life through basic education and skill development programs that will help alleviate poverty. Our current focus is in Rwanda, where we work with abandoned children and youth, training them to be a part of their community development program, that will ultimately help them to become productive adults. We pay particular attention to the advancement of equal rights for girls’ education for self-sustenance.
Our mission has evolved in recent years to include hundreds of poor women ravaged with poverty, homelessness and HIV/AIDS. We created a small-scale, micro-finance program to support their arts and craft projects, farming and petty-trading endeavors.
