Elshadai Child Development, Inc.


Elshadai Child Development started with a discontent and holy calling of one Ethiopian woman, Adanech Janka, living in the outskirts of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. She knew many children living around her were not attending school and were falling victim to generational poverty. Feeling compelled to help in some way, she began sponsoring several children in her community to attend school.

The more she helped, the more she realized how great the need was. In 2008, Lisa Simon heard about Adanech’s work during a short-term mission trip to Ethiopia. After spending several months as a volunteer with the children, Lisa shared Adanech’s passion to help these children and began looking for people interested in sponsoring children in need.
