Inquire about the trip

At Blessing the Children International (BCI), we believe every child deserves a chance in life: it's our reason for existing. BCI is big enough to make a broad and lasting impact but small enough to offer an intimate and individualized experience for each traveler. Our staff in Ethiopia will work closely with you to ensure that your ministry objectives are met and that your trip is personally rewarding and impactful. No special skills are needed to make an impact. If you can hold a child's hand, we need you. There is no limit to the ways you can make an impact. Some ideas include teaching English as a second language, leadership training, prayer, medical checkups, VBS, music, sports, art, home visits.

What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Home Visit

We serve children in Debre Zeyit, Ethiopia, a vibrant country located in the horn of Africa. Our ministry is located 41 miles southeast of the capital city of Addis Ababa. We offer comfortable guest house accommodations on our ministry site, with many western amenities. We offer mission trips year-round. Missionaries may choose a trip length of 2 weeks up to 3 months. We will customize your trip experience to help you make the greatest impact on the children you serve while fulfilling your calling. Whether your passion is gardening, singing, teaching, or anything in between, we will work with you to schedule activities that put your skills and talents to use in a meaningful way. Groups and individuals welcome.

Relation of Opportunity to National Church and/or Long-term Goals

We have served orphaned and impoverished children in Debre Zeyit, Ethiopia since 2007. We meet the immediate needs of food, clothing, medical care and education for the children through our child sponsorship program. We set them up for bright futures by providing an education at the BCI Academy, a school of excellence for preschool through 12th grades. We offer mission trips and internships year-round, which bring international resources and learning opportunities. We foster English as a second language, allowing us to link the children to the global community. We pray with and for and love on each and every child and give like minded people around the world an opportunity to do the same.
