Enabling Edget Orphanage to continue to support the government orphanages in Ethiopia to care for children placed for adoption
Supporting the team at Edget to care for children with often complex needs in a nurturing environment .
Enabling more secure care for children from government orphanages through financial support, advice and in-country orphanage maintenance.
Provide enduring opportunities for Edget adoptive families to forge a cultural and community connection to Edget, and Ethiopia
Edget Outreach has been established by Edget Adoptive Parents who have a keen interest in ensuring that the positive welfare of government orphanage children in need and Edget Orphanage service can continue well into the future, for the mutual benefit of children and new parents. We are based internationally – in Thailand, Singapore, Taiwan, and Australia. Working remotely, we have formalized our association and run it transparently.
Running an orphanage is costly - there’s rent, power, water, staff, food, medicine, and maintenance costs which all add up. Edget Outreach provides an opportunity for those touched by the adoption process to contribute towards the successful ongoing impact of Edget Orphanage, to ultimately benefit the children under care. We also facilitate cultural connections, in country connections with adoptive families, and other non-monetary support mechanisms for Edget Orphanage.

We welcome all forms of support both monetary and in-kind donations – here’s how you can help us keep Edget Orphanage sustainable:
Monetary Donation: We provide a centralised collection and forwarding service to Edget Orphanage for two types of donations:
Regular Contributions: Our third party connection with Stripe securely facilitates credit card deductions for weekly/monthly/annual contributions. Whatever your preference, your donation is appreciated. We have a linked USD account that we clear on a monthly basis, which goes directly to the Edget Orphanage operating account, saving individual transfer fees and charges.
One-off Contributions: For some, once off donations are desirable. We can facilitate this also through the Stripe secure payments system, using your credit card. We prefer Stripe as a third party system as it provides a secure payments framework and trackable feedback.
Our Commitment to You: Whether regular or once off – our commitment to you is to forward your donation through to Edget in the month it is received. We welcome questions and enquiries – please write to us here. We maintain records of all transactions for 5 years, contact us if you need any information on past transactions.
In-kind Support For some people, in-kind support provides a sense of satisfaction through delivered required goods or services. Whether it be baby food, food for the staff, nappies, medicines, cleaning products, water, or hardware like beds/mattresses or blankets – the orphanage is always in need. Write to us here with details of your suggestion, and we’ll help you make it happen.
