About us

Gadisa Birhanu, founder of Testimony 2540, knows there is power in a name. As an NGO, Testimony 2540 serves street children in Addis Ababa and provides them the means to attend school and become successful with the talents God has given them. So why Testimony 2540? Simple. The Testimony of Gadisa, himself, and Matthew 25:40. Gadisa grew up homeless and an orphan; a street child. Instead of letting the situation control him, Gadisa put himself through school and eventually graduated university. As he says his testimony “will inspire and give  hope to the children to dream big.

Abbiamo avuto il privilegio di far parte del programma di volontariato di Testimony2540 in Etiopia. Durante la nostra visita al Centro Alimentare, abbiamo potuto lavorare a stretto contatto con i bambini e l'organizzazione. È stato incredibile vedere come il nostro contributo abbia un impatto positivo sulla vita di questi bambini. Siamo grati a Testimony2540 per averci dato questa opportunità unica
