As the global climate continues to change, the battle for the children of Africa is often swept under the rug by what society deems to be more important social issues. We often forget that Ethiopia children are living in poverty and despair until and unless we see it on those commercials that suddenly bring the full weight of the real world crashing right back down to life. This, of course, can be a tough pill to swallow. This is made even more complicated by the fact that many people do not know what to do in order to make their feelings about Ethiopia children stretch into action.
Ethiopia adoption is a great way to take care of some of the children of Ethiopia. Thousands of Ethiopia children are living in institutions or organizations such as orphanages because their parents no longer have the means to care for them. This is because of poverty, the effects of war, or the fact that parents have died as a result of various diseases and afflictions such as AIDS. The children are well cared for in most Ethiopian hospitals and organizations, but still need a loving family environment in which to exist as is ideal.
Fighting For Rights
There is also the notion of Ethiopia Children, an organization that fights for the rights of children in Ethiopia. This organization has called on governmental and non-governmental agencies to curb and put an instant stop to the violence against children that happens in that country. Issues such as corporal punishment and human rights violations against children are constantly approached by the organization with demands of implementations of laws and changes to the legal code to protect the children of Africa. The issues of HIV/AIDS are also looked at through the organization to help assist in treatment and education about the prospect of this disease.
Children have to travel many miles to go to most schools because the geographical climate of Ethiopia is rural. School for Ethiopia children is free, however, enabling everyone to have the chance to attend it. Children enjoy the interaction in schools and love to play games of strategy and fun such as “Gebeta”. Gebeta is a game of strategy played with cups and seeds involving rows. Games like this are common, as are conventional sports such as soccer. Dancing is also popular among Ethiopia children, especially the eskista dance with the shoulders.
