Our kids come from terrible backgrounds. Some are orphaned, some abused, some abandoned - the things you never want for your children, or anyone's children. They were born in to the poorest communities, written off by society. But beyond their sadness we see their potential. We don't walk past them - we pick them up, and help them get on their feet. We stand by them.
Meet Sudi, she's one of our kids. You can take a tour around her home in Dembi Dollo, Ethiopia and find out how with Stand by Me's care, she now has a bright future ahead of her.
Our child-centred approach to care tackles every obstacle our kids, like Sudi, face. This enables them to access a life-changing education. We're in no rush - we're in this for the long term to help them become who they were created to be.
