\"Dr.Forum on Sustainable Child Empowerment (FSCE) is a local, non-governmental, non-profit child-centered organization that works with a vision to see that the wellbeing and protection needs of children are fulfilled.

I am honored to see the multiple and effective community-based programs and the recently initiated community-based child protection systems that support a good deal of vulnerable children through FSCE’s seven Area Program Offices (APOs) in five major cities of the country, namely, Addis Ababa, Bahir Dar, Adama, Dessie and Dire Dawa. Major FSCE program interventions include awareness raising, livelihood promotion, non-formal education and educational support, protecting children without appropriate parental care, providing community-led service to children in contact with the law, and recovery and rehabilitation of sexually abused and exploited children, among others.

I have witnessed the vital and lasting impacts of the many programs implemented by FSCE since its inception 23 years ago and I have come to realize more vividly what we can do as an organization. This continues to inspire me to do even more. Thousands of sexually abused and exploited girls have been protected and their life pattern has been significantly changed. The knowledge, awareness and attitude of parents and guardians and the communities in target intervention areas have greatly improved and people’s actual involvement in protecting, caring and supporting vulnerable children has improved. Thousands of children have had access to education in both formal and non-formal schools and the capabilities and income status of their families have improved. Moreover, the capabilities and income of target young children and their families have been enhanced significantly. By so doing, FSCE has made a huge impact on all its beneficiaries, communities and stakeholders. I can see how powerful we are when we act in unison.

At last, on behalf of the Executive Board, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all those who have extended their kind support to the virtuous and worthwhile efforts of FSCE. It is indeed an honor to partner with you all to advance the cause of disadvantaged children. I hope that you will be as inspired as I am, if not more so, by what has been done and by what we can continue to do together. Today, tomorrow, and for many years to come, your efforts will create a greater good for all.
