Executive Director of IFSO with sponsored children in Addis Ababa


 Weizero Mekdes Zelelew -Founder and Executive Director.

From the outset, I had a strong belief in establishing this organization that I will be successful with the will of God and the support of kindhearted donors. I am still confident that IFSO’s vision to see a society where children are free from effects of poverty in Ethiopia are realized.
The General Assembly, the Board Members and Staff are committed to make IFSO’s objectives realized. There is no boundary for kind heart. So, we hope our stakeholders and donors will continue their support in undertaking to help orphans and destitute children alleviate their problems.
