About Amharic Kids

Amharic Kids was born out of our families' adoption journey. We adopted our oldest daughter as a baby and at that time all we cared about was making sure she ate and grew. In time, we began to look for Ethiopian cultural and language outlets knowing how crucial it would be for our daughters' future self-esteem.

In the process our whole family enjoyed the relationships we built, language we have learned and cultural tidbits we have been able to incorporate into our home life.

We created Amharic Kids to meet the need for easily accessible books, toys, and handicrafts related to Ethiopia. It all started with publishing the book “Our First Amharic Words” and our now famous Amharic Color and Number Bean Bag sets. We are now sourcing all types of products about Ethiopia, and have published more books including the 7 time award winning “Ethiopian Voices: Tsion’s Life” and “Yafi’s Family: an Ethiopian boys journey of love, loss and adoption.

Like all adoptive families, we have always been concerned about giving back to Ethiopia. Amharic Kids gives back by sponsoring individual Ethiopian children, supporting Ethiopian food aid programs, and providing you fundraising opportunities to support your favorite Ethiopian cause or personal adoption. A large part of what we are doing is sourcing fair trade handicrafts direct from the artisans or NGOs. Being a link in the chain that empowers and gives a financial livelihood to families is rewarding beyond belief. Purchase of these products finishes the circle! All of this is the most rewarding part of Amharic Kids.

From our family to yours, thank you for your support!
