"To serve as a platform for collaboration to mobilize the society in order for every Ethiopian child to belong in a family"
"A strong alliance to see every Ethiopian child in a loving family"
Why DEBO Exist
One of the biggest challenges currently facing Ethiopia is the ever-increasing number of orphaned and vulnerable children in the country. In spite of the effort of many community-based, local and international organizations to curb the problem, the challenge still remains strong.
A single organization on its own cannot provide all the support to millions of children in need through limited service lines. But an alliance/collaboration among child welfare organizations can help achieve shared goals and vision, which may not otherwise be achievable by an individual organization.
Therefore, Instead of working in isolation or competing with one another, organizations need to collaborate to bring about a significant difference.
