About us Our mission Our mission We turn street children into university graduates because we believe that education is the way out of poverty EEF is an effective child sponsorship programme, that produces measurable and sustainable results year after year without wasting any money on admin. We started in 2004 and have achieved some amazing results, for example, 19 of our students are now medical doctors across Ethiopia. Some further stats can be found here, and some amazing individual stories here. However, we cannot do any of this without your help. Please support us by making a donation or by sponsoring one of our students.
