The Kidmia Foundation

Kidmia means priority in Amharic, the official language of Ethiopia. Our priority is to facilitate lasting change in the lives of orphaned and vulnerable children in rural Ethiopia. To do this, Kidmia provides holistic care and shelter to children in need, while being the catalyst of their adoption into local gospel-loving families. We are driven by a passion for Jesus Christ and a desire to see the people of Ethiopia changed by His grace.
