Hope for Hossana is an International Child Welfare project supported by Children's Home Society & Family Services. This program helps vulnerable children, families and communities in Hossana, Ethiopia. It is a multi-faceted, community-based project with a holistic approach to supporting families. Services will eventually include an elementary school for up to 400 children, a pediatric clinic and a women's health facility. This project will be completed in phases, beginning with the elementary school. Phase I of the school opened in September 2009. Two hundred students are now attending school, some for the first time in their lives. Most of these children come from families living in severe poverty and they might never have the opportunity for a quality education without the support of donors. In addition to classrooms, the school features clean, drinkable water, recreational area, a meal program and a library. Providing an education is only one aspect of the support project which also includes a small business development program and a community health initiative designed to equip families with healthy living information such as hygiene, nutrition and HIV prevention.
The school started their second academic year with 228 students in grades K–5th. There are two K classes and the rest of the grades each have 1 class. The plan is to keep adding grades until the school functions as a full primary school(K-8).There are 128 students under full sponsorship, which covers their tuition, transportation to and from school, educational materials, supplies & participation in the meal programThe local government helps select students to be under sponsorship, as they are aware of the families & kids most in need. Children from all over the Hossana area are coming to the school, which is why transportation is provided. All of the children receive a medical exam and routine check-ups through the schoolDuring the routine exam they found that a few of the students are HIV+. Once their diagnosis was confirmed, the students started receiving anti-retroviral medication & additional support through the school.
