  • Title: The lost generation - Beyond The Orphanage
    Descriptive info: The lost generation.. The Lost Generation.. We ve seen it, heard it and talked about it for years we know it well.. The hard facts are that in Ethiopia alone, more than 12 percent of all children are orphans in real terms, that is around 4.. 6 million children.. The magnitude of the problem is overwhelming.. They are the Lost Generation - collateral damage of the AIDS epidemic, famine, war, poverty and disease.. With no parents or economic resources, these children have nowhere to turn and very little hope for the future.. The odds are stacked against them at the outset: suffering emotional and psychological damage, health challenges associated with poverty, malnutrition, and/or HIV/AIDS.. The key to escaping a bleak future is education - lacking the necessary funds to support that, it becomes almost impossible to achieve their born right to an optimistic future.. Education in Crisis.. Research has borne out time and again, that education is the critical difference between success and failure on many levels.. Education is a powerful vaccine against HIV/AIDS.. Several million cases of HIV/AIDS could be prevented in the next decade if every child received an education.. Girls education, in particular, makes a difference that extends for generations.. A 2006 Human Rights Watch report showed that an extra year of a woman s education has been shown to reduce the risk that her child will die in infancy by 5-10 percent.. Research further indicates that young women s earnings are typically 10-20 percent higher for every year of school completed.. Girls education is the best single policy for reducing reproduction rates - achieving smaller and more sustainable families.. A child born to a literate mother is 50 percent more  ...   of their race, religion, and physical or mental challenges.. In partnership with the local community and government, we place the children in loving, secure homes, with family whenever possible.. Our model is unique in many ways because it focuses on supporting the children within their own communities.. This reduces the disruptions in previously chaotic lives and provides the best chance for the children to thrive.. BTO supports the child financially in whatever way necessary paying rent, school fees, food, and medical costs.. We bolster their psychological development with regular meetings with social workers, psychologists, and trained educators.. BTOs innovative program is dedicated to overcoming barriers to education so that the children in our care can reap the enormous benefits an education provides.. Because teacher-student ratios in Ethiopia range from 1:60-1:90, we provide programming that augments classroom education, as well as making sure that all our children are able to attend school.. We provide an extensive program, with 24-hour-a-day access to a drop-in centre, library, computer lab, after-school and summer school classes, all designed for each individual child to flourish and reach their individual potential.. Our programs are focused on individual children, but the effects may be much farther-reaching.. One of the long-term consequences of the AIDS epidemic is the decimation of a productive generation of working adults the parents of the children we serve.. By helping these children every step of the way along their journey to a productive adulthood, the damages wrought by the AIDS epidemic will be mitigated as these children take their place in a healthier Ethiopia.. How can you help?.. You can make a difference to a child s life by donating today.. Warning: Some of the below images are disturbing..

  • Title: What we do - Beyond The Orphanage
    Descriptive info: Beyond the Orphanage Foundation (BTOF) was established in 2007 in Addis Ababa Ethiopia.. Ethiopia has one of the largest populations of orphans in the world 13% of children throughout the country are missing one or both parents.. This represents an estimated 4.. 6 million children 800,000 of whom were orphaned by HIV/AIDS.. For children ages 10 to 18 there is very little support; studies show only 10% of orphans are receiving adequate care, this is the area BTOF focuses on.. Even where kinship care is a possibility, a dire lack of financial resources often prevents potential caregivers from helping.. In fact, only 4% of these families receive external support compared to a global average of other developing nations which is 33.. 7%.. As more parents die, the capacity of the extended family to take care of orphans becomes smaller and smaller.. In all countries where there is a large HIV/AIDS epidemic, at first the orphans are not seen as they are absorbed by the traditional systems.. Eventually the system breaks down due to the sheer number of orphans and lack of support forcing the children onto the streets.. BTOF was established to enable these young people to become successful, independent adults within their local Ethiopian communities by establishing a safe, stable home preferably with a member of their extended family in-keeping with traditional Ethiopian  ...   they are supported to pursue vocational training, University, or set up a small business.. The first cohort of children have made identifiable gains in areas such as health, education, housing stability, and psychosocial well-being.. The support BTOO gives for the development of the children in the program include.. 1) A safe house with an approved guardian.. 2) If required, BTOO supplies a house or pays part of the rent if child joins an existing household.. 3) The provision of three meals a day.. 4) Access to the BTO safe-house/drop-in centre 24/7.. 5) All medical and dental costs regardless of the child s personal health challenges.. 6) An amount is set aside for savings for each child each month it is deposited into an account for them but they do not have access to that account until adulthood.. 7) All clothing including school uniforms.. 8) All school fees, school books, school bags etc.. 9) When required, transport to and from school.. 10) After school tutoring every day.. 11) Summer school and holiday classes (mainly English and computers).. 12) Access to BTO provided individual and group counselling,including child welfare specialists from overseas.. 13) BTO events and trips so the children can enjoy the national holidays.. 14) Once a child graduates from high school, they are still supported through university or vocational training but to a lesser degree..

Where does my money go?..

Our  ...   be that you continue to be part of the BTO community for some time.. We have a long term commitment to the orphans of Ethiopia and we rely on generous donors to sustain our goals.. How is BTO different from other organisations?.. BTO is very different from other sponsorship organisations in that we focus on providing children with a secure, family home environment.. We aim to place the child within the home of a caring extended family or local community member.. This objective makes a huge difference to a child s life.. Research has shown that children living as part of a family unit have significantly higher psychological and social wellbeing than forms of child care.. In addition, BTO is non-religious and non-political.. We have no agenda other than helping children to realise their potential.. What do sponsors receive?.. To establish and maintain a connection as a sponsor, we like to keep our sponsors as involved as they would like to be.. We like to keep sponsors engaged with our work and their sponsored child s wellbeing..

Can I visit my sponsored child?.. We think visiting a sponsored child is a wonderful experience and we will help you arrange this.. Given logistical issues, any planned trips should be notified to us as early as possible so that we can ensure you get the most out of your trip.. At BTO we take child protection very seriously there is a process to go through before we can confirm a visit is allowed which includes police checks.. All visits are supervised by BTO staff in Ethiopia.. Can I choose the child that I want to sponsor?.. When you decide to sponsor you will be asked for your preference reference to age and gender.. If you are happy for us to select a child on your behalf we can locate a child with the greatest need.. What are my payment options?.. If you are an Australian resident (or have an Australian bank account), you are able to pay by direct debit or by credit card.. If you are not resident in Australia, your payment is processed through your credit card.. BTO S commitment to child protection.. BTO recognises that by the nature of our work, we are at risk of being targeted by those wanting to exploit or harm children.. BTO considers child abuse unacceptable in all circumstances and is committed to ensuring that all possible and necessary steps are taken to acknowledge the rights and protection of all children (a person under the age of 18 years) that we work with.. Therefore we have put in place clear policies, procedures and guidelines to ensure children are respected, protected, empowered and active in their own protection; and staff are confident, competent and well supported in meeting their protection responsibilities..
