The Selamta Family Project is a successful model that creates small families for orphaned children and disenfranchised women who have lost their place in society due to AIDS, poverty and lack of economic opportunity. Each vibrant new family includes a Selmata-trained mother, an auntie (mother's assistant), and eight children who live in a warm home of their own. The Selamta staff provides support, networking and small business training as the family grows and becomes self-sufficient.
