Mission Statement: (See Web Site For Updated Information)
Blue Nile Childrens Organization(BNCO) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization working with orphaned children in Bahir Dar and Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Headquartered in Seattle, WA, BNCO works to raise money in the states to support our Sponsorship Program and Medical Center and Education Program in Ethiopia. BNCO also works with the local community to promote education on preventive methods for infectious diseases. While we work to provide for over 70 orphans currently in our care, it is our desire to also help educate the community in order to prevent more orphans.
