Welcome to Ethiopian Kids Community!
We are a parent established and led 501(c)3 nonprofit that nurtures connections and provides support for families with Ethiopian American children. We have monthly gatherings for families at fun venues, topic based and just for fun parent gatherings, a book club, Ethiopian dance class, and other activities. Of course, we are most known for the annual EKC Summer Mehaber which celebrates Ethiopia and is the largest Ethiopian adoption event in the world. In July 2010 we had 1,200 people come to the Minnesota State Fairgrounds for a superb time.
We are a grass roots organization that depends on parent involvement. We work to provide you with as much or as little structure needed for an impromptu gathering in a park, a topical discussion group, or resources for adoption issues. We welcome your ideas!
EKC is specifically looking for parents to:
1. Host or lead a discussion based small group gathering on a topic relevant to our community (waiting family, traveling back to Ethiopia, attachment, etc.)
Please feel free to contact me.
