What We Do

Netsanet Children’s Village provides shelter, nourishment, clothing, medical care, and education to special needs, abandoned, and orphaned children. Our Community Outreach Programs allow us to provide single mothers and families in the community with customized support, through collaboration with medical professionals and social workers, tailored to the unique circumstances of each family.

Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

Who We Are

Suzanne Scheuble, Founder

When Suzanne Scheuble was 11-years-old, she knew God was calling her to care for orphans in Ethiopia. Five years later, that dream became a reality when she visited Ethiopia for the first time. In that trip, through embracing numerous abandoned babies, people dying of AIDS, children suffering from starvation and tuberculosis, she decided to give her entire life to serving Christ by caring for and empowering the poorest of the poor. After visiting numerous orphanages across the world and witnessing the appalling conditions in some of these institutions, God gave her a vision.

The vision was to create beautiful, family-style homes for special needs orphans and abandoned children while preventing many children from becoming orphaned. She founded Netsanet Children’s Village in 2017 and currently works as the full-time executive director to the organization. Suzanne lives in Hawassa, Ethiopia with husband, Abraham and 5 beautiful children. Her husband, who is a doctor, also works tirelessly to coordinate the medical care for the children and organization. More About Our Founder
