The Forsaken Children (TFC): Who We Are
The Forsaken Children is a faith-based, non-profit organization who works with Ethiopian partners to RESCUE children from the streets, RESTORE them to family and school, and REBUILD lasting hope through education and Christís love.
Who We Impact: Ethiopian Street Kids & Kids at Risk
Estimates report more than 150,000 children live on the streets of Ethiopia. TFC exists for two primary groups of children: those who are on the verge of "streetism" and those who are full time street children.

We often refer to them as "Drop-In Center Kids" because they are starting the program at our Drop-In Center to begin the hopeful transition of "life on the streets" to reintegration to home/family, all the while hearing about Jesus Christ and His lasting hope and love.)
