Dear all IFSO’s Board, Management, and Staff
I am really pleased and grateful to take part to this 20th Anniversary of IFSO establishment.
I arrived in Ethiopia for the first time in February 2007, this makes now 9 years ago. Since that moment, day by day, effort by effort we have achieved together a lot of results. IFSO has been my entry point to the Country. Thanks to IFSO staff I have discovered Ethiopia and, most importantly, Ethiopians. Together, we have supported thousands of children and their families: children victims of sexual abuse and violence; HIV positive children; children so poor not to be able to attend school. Read More
