Adoption Ministry of YWAM Ethiopia is a Christian missionary organization called to help meet the needs of widows, children and at-risk families in Ethiopia.  Through a variety of ways, we seek to minister to those in Ethiopia who are without hope. 

The ministry began in 2007 when our ministry director, Joy Casey, was visiting Ethiopia and God began stirring in her heart His desire to bring hope to the marginalized women and children in that beautiful country.

Today we are an official NGO (non-governmental organization) working to support women and children in the community who are without hope.
