Who Are We?
Here at the Caleb Foundation we thrive on providing individuals and the community with the means and resources necessary in assisting them on their path to self-sufficiency. The organization is led by a diverse group of individuals with a wide range of skills and expertise. Our goal is to shine light on our community’s future. Our organization would like to see a positive impact by enabling the dependent to become independent and helping others achieve their independency. The Caleb Foundation staff and members, encourage each one of you to be a part of this nonprofit organization and help us meet our goal of reaching out to those who are underprivileged.
Here in the U.S., we have a program that is specifically designed to Ethiopian immigrant parents who are facing difficulties in communicating with their U.S. born and raised children. We believe that language and culture barriers have played a great role for the cause of the issue. Our goal is to narrow down the differences between these parents and children which we also predict will contribute to the up bring of a productive and responsible citizens to their country as well their family. Giving awareness to these children of the parents’ background, culture and moral values is crucial for the expected change. Our focus is on both the parents and children on educating them the importance of family, love and respect to each other according to the Biblical principles. Our organization also reaches out to needy parents who are struggling to support the family by working two or more jobs. We plan on setting up workshops periodically to familiarize them with basic computer knowledge and skills, provide them information related to jobs, schools, etc.
What We Do
Throughout the year, the organization will sponsor children in need in Ethiopia. Any child who has beeninfected by HIV/AIDS, victim of domestic abuses and poverty will qualify for our sponsorship as long as the funds are available. The number of children we will be sponsoring is estimated to be 180- 200 children per year. We plan on covering any school related expenses besides providing food and medication. The main goal of this organization is to ensure that we provide financial support for children between the age of 4 - 6 to complete their preparatory classes, provide the financial assistance for children who completed their elementary education, however, unable to continue their high school education. The approximate cost per child per year is estimated to be $300.00. This amount is expected to cover tuition fees, school supplies, uniforms and meal.
