Our Story

Thank you for visiting our website and your interest in Foundation Roseland! 
Several years ago (in 2010) two ladies, two friends, an Ethiopian (Tirsit Mulugeta Wako) and a Dutch (Danielle Overbeek Kramer), conceived the idea of working totally non-profit for the betterment of life of the most vulnerable children and their families in Ethiopia. So they started the Rose Land Child and Family Development organization in Ethiopia and Stichting Roseland in the Netherlands with both the same mission and vision working fully together for the same purpose.

The focus of the organization is to rescue children and their families from extreme poverty and to make the poorest of the poor children and their families smile again. At the moment over 100 children are supported by sponsors from different countries (The Netherlands, UK, Croatia, Switzerland, Australia and USA). The support includes provision of educational materials, one meal per day, clothing, medical care, as well as counseling services for the parents/guardians of the children (e.g. birth control, pedagogical skills, hygienic support, income generating projects). To reach independence and improvement of the situation of the children and families not only the children but the whole family and especially the mothers are educated and stimulated to improve their conditions.
