Making a difference - one child at a time
We are Blessing the Children International, a global community that believes every child deserves a chance in life. We're breaking the cycle of poverty for orphans and widows in Ethiopia, Africa through education, love, care, coaching and real change in their lives and in the generations that follow.
We feed hundreds of meals to hungry and impoverished children each week through our breakfast and lunch feeding programs. We also provide grain support to keep their bellies full at home.
We provide routine medical checkups, vitamins, vaccinations, and access to advanced medical care to ensure the health and wellbeing of the children in our care.
We educate more than 2,000 students each year at our school, the BCI Academy. We opened our doors in 2009 and in 2018 sent our first University graduates into the workforce.
Our passion is ministering to the physical, mental, social, and spiritual needs of orphaned and impoverished children. Can you partner with us in rescuing a child in Ethiopia from a daily struggle for survival? We invite you to connect with one of our waiting children by providing monthly sponsorship. It takes less than a dollar a day to change a life!
The children of Ethiopia struggle with the basics of life in ways that are difficult to imagine until you've seen it first-hand. Giving of yourself in ministry will change your life and the lives of those you touch. No special skills are required - just a heart to serve.
"Now, after 3 mission trips through BCI, I can't imagine my life without Ethiopia. The Lord is doing HUGE things in Ethiopia and I am blessed to be a part of His plan."
"Blessing the Children is doing the work of the ministry and it is working! You can literally see the difference in the children enrolled in the BCI program and those on the streets and in the neighborhoods. The BCI children appear healthier, better nourished, better clothed, happier!"
"I arranged my mission trip with BCI in the hopes of helping to make a difference in the lives of the people and children in Ethiopia, but I think that the biggest difference made was the one they made in my life."
