Why was our organization created ?

It was created thanks to the unshakeable will and determination of a woman : Emebet GEBRE-AB, a high-level marathon runner, ethiopian by birth, whose distressing life led to France ( and more precisely in Le Puy en Velay, in Haute-Loire), a country where she now lives since 20 years.

She became aware that the growing number of orphans (whose parents died of illness or because of the war) in her country needed help as she, recently, had to come back to Ethiopia after the death of her sister who left 7 orphan children.

She had the idea to create the organization « Mama Ethiopia », which is official since june 2002.

The purpose of this organization « Mama Ethiopia » is thus to come to the assistance of Addis Abeba's orphans, the completion of its project being, to build an orphanage and to develop the sponsorship of the children who will be accomodated there.

For her project, Emebet, who is a high-level sportswoman, received the support of two famous ethiopian runners : Derartu TULU and Hailé GEBRE-SELASSIE.


2. The materialization of our project :
We have drawn the plans of the future orphanage : The facilities would be made of buildings including :
. Rooms for different activities. A kitchen. A refectory. Dormitories. Sanitary installations. A free health centre. The creation of a stadium is also planned. Training period, sports activities for professional or amateur sportsmen will be organized there and will be with charge for admission. This stadium will be a fundamental source of income for the running of the orphanage. Finally, bungalows will be necessary to accommodate the sportsmen.This orphanage's capacity of reception will be of 300 children.
