About Us

We are Streets of Hope

Streets of Hope was founded in 2018 by Yemisrach (Meya), who was adopted from Ethiopia. Her passion has always been to go back to Ethiopia to reach vulnerable children and their families within the community she came from. Her approach is holistic, teaching the Word of God and meeting practical needs.

Our Mission

Making the greatness, goodness, and the glory of God known in the streets of Ethiopia. 

Our Vision

Empowering the local churches & leaders to make a difference on the lives of the next generation.

Our Founders & Directors

Yesmisrach (Meya)

Yemisrach (Meya ) was born in southern Ethiopia in the small city of Sodo. As a child she attended church with her family, where her mother led prayer meetings, and her father served as an elder. Church was a big part of her family’s life. Even as a child she remembers wondering why there was so much poverty in her country, sparking a desire to help…

When she was adopted in the U.S. as a teenager, she never lost the desire to help the children of Ethiopia. Meya spent six years working with Metro World Child in Brooklyn, NY. In 2019, she moved to Ethiopia to fulfill a lifelong dream.

Bruno Auberson

Bruno Auberson was born and raised in Switzerland in a small village called Bavois. At age 15 he had the opportunity to go on a mission trip to West Africa. That experience left him with the desire to be involved in ministry to Africa…

 Bruno has spent time in five  different African countries pursuing what God has put on his heart. He also spent four years in Brooklyn NY working with Metro World Child. While working with Meya his interest shifted to Ethiopia.
