Building Bridges

Along with providing value to more than 14 million households, Hosanna supports students by providing internships, careers, tuition, shelter and more. Hosanna has built a relationship with nearby California State University Dominguez Hills to give students hands-on production experience through internships.

In addition to working with CSUDH students, HBN-TV have created a safe haven for orphaned children in Ethiopia by creating the Hosanna House Program. Hosanna House provides food, shelter, clothing, healthcare, and education for orphaned girls who have lost their parents to HIV/AIDS. “Without the love and care of Hosanna House these children would be vulnerable to exploitation by human traffickers” said Dottie Laster a Human Trafficking Consultant.

Currently Hosanna House provides services to 20 girls and over 60 boys in Ethiopia. Over the last nine years, several girls have graduated and three have gone on to college. The country has seen a steady increase in the number of children becoming orphaned due to AIDS and Hosanna House has taken responsibility to provide a needed service.

“We realize that there are enormous human needs in Ethiopia and there is no way we can solve all of them, but by being a part of the solution, we can make a difference in the lives of many” said Tersit Asrat.
