Care for Children and Elders Life Association (CCELA)
Care for Children and Elders Life Association (CCELA) is a non-political, not-for-profit privately run humanitarian organisation.
They are a legally registered and licensed to operate in accordance with the charities and societies proclamation, but rely solely on the generosity of sponsors and donors to continue their work.
CCELA provides various comprehensive services including a community based sponsorship programme, skill training for Nannies working in both governmental and non-governmental orphanages, and economical and psychosocial support for the destitute elderly.
They currently provide a loving, secure home environment for 6 toddlers aged between 1 and 4 years of age, and 5 adolescent girls.
Their hard work and high standards have been recognised by authorities in Ethiopia, with CCELA recently selected as one of the best non-Government organisations (NGO) working in the children sector, both in terms of their professional practice, values and fulfilling the standards of MOWA (Ministry of Women’s Affairs).
Whilst Ethiopian culture and traditions are fully retained and an integrated part of life for their children, they pride the facility to high Western standards.
