Mission Statement

The mission of Anbessa Foundation is to be a bridge between Ethiopia and North America.  We want to promote Ethiopian music and culture to people in North America and from there to the rest of the world.

We believe that the beauty and richness of Ethiopian culture can serve as a catalyst for change in the priorities, outlook, self-concept and behavior of African American youth by connecting them to a proud tradition that is as old as time itself.

We plan to promote the music and culture of Ethiopia in North America and beyond and to raise money through the promotion of fundraising concerts and cultural events in addition to public solicitation.

We also intend to be a conduit for the flow of funds and channeling of other resources to various programs, organizations, and agencies whose efforts to uplift the quality of life for those most in need in Ethiopia are recognized as being effective and would be enhanced by that increased funding.

Our first priority for that funding, are those programs, organizations, and agencies whose mandate is the care of the orphaned children of Ethiopia.  A conservative accounting reveals that there are 4.6 million orphans in Ethiopia today.  Most of those children are orphans as a result of AIDS and many of them are themselves afflicted.  We can help and we must help. 

We have identified the following programs, organizations, and agencies whose work to promote the culture of Ethiopia and/or to care for the children of Ethiopia warrants our support in our first year of operation.  We expect to modify and/or update this list annually based on the performance of those programs, organizations, and agencies.
