As the owner of Vident Financial, the Vident Investors’ Oversight Trust believes that human productivity is the source of growth and wealth creation. Vident Financial is proud to encourage human productivity at a grassroots level by supporting Hanna’s Home, an orphanage in the heart of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia dedicated to loving kids from childhood through university graduation.

Vident Financial’s support is partly accredited to its production of an Ethiopian, medium roast coffee blend, we named Hanna’s Blend.

Vident Financial will also match the dollar amount of coffee you purchase as a donation to support Hanna’s mission and dream.

Story of Hanna's Home

Hanna’s Home is a unique orphanage, started through the compassion of one radiant and joyful woman, who opened her home to street children and cared for them. Since 1997, in support of Hanna’s mission other women opened their homes to or-phans, called “house-moms.” Together they have taken in over 330 orphans in Ethiopia. They provide food, shelter, education, love and security. Hanna ensures that all of her kids attend local schools.

Hanna’s Home operates on a hub-and-spoke model, making it a unique orphanage. The central compound serves as a safe haven for the kids to play and learn. The children live in individual homes with their house-mothers - within walking distance of the compound and their local schools.
