About Us

Adoption Ministry of YWAM Ethiopia began in 2007 when our ministry director, Joy Casey, was visiting Ethiopia and God began stirring in her heart His desire to bring hope to the marginalized women and children in that beautiful country.

Today we have four Widows and Orphans Homes in the Oromia region and are an official NGO (non-governmental organization) working to support women and children in the community who are without hope.

We also partner with Children's House International (the licensed adoption agency in Ethiopia) to process adoptions of the children from these four orphanages and match them with loving Christian families in the United States.
