Message from the Founder and Executive Director, Weizero Mekdes Zelelew.

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 the effects of poverty in Ethiopia will be realizable.
The General Assembly, the Board Members and the Staff are committed to make IFSO’s objectives achievable. There is no boundary for kind heart. So, we hope our stakeholders and donors will continue their support to us in our undertaking to help orphans and destitute children alleviate their problems and the endeavor we make to contribute to sustainable development will still be our determination to serve the community.
