Desta has supported the children at Bete Desta Children's Home using her own money earned through her tireless work at her Winnipeg restaurant. Many of her Harman's Ethiopian Restaurant customers have come forward to support our fundraising dinner.  


Our annual May fundraiser has been postponed in 2020 due to COVID-19.  We are hoping to hold the fundraiser in 2021, however this will depend on the advise from the Health Authority. Please check with us for updates. 

The needs of the children are year round, if you would like to make a donation you can at any time. 


The donations from 2017 went toward providing daily meals, clothing and a safe space for 50 children.  Your donations create the opportunity for these children to grow strong and confident. 


Thank you!



We love sharing photos and biographies of all the children at Bete Desta Children's Home.  If you want to make a difference in the life of a child, consider donating monthly.

You are invited to become an expert Ethiopian cook! Join us each month for cooking classes that will show you how to make the many delicious meat and veggie combinations while supporting a great cause.

Your donations will have a direct impact.  We are 100%  volunteer based and donate most of the administrative costs such as printing.  That's the benefit of being a small organization!


We recently teamed up with Rotessa to allow donors the convenience of setting up donations through pre authorized debits! You can become a single time or monthly recurring donor - just email us at to sign up.


You can drop off cash or a cheque at Harman's Café 570 Sargent anytime during business hours.


Since Bete Desta is only incorporated as a charity in Ethiopia, Canadian tax receipts are not available. The administrative cost of Canadian tax receipts is too high given how small we are. We value sending every dollar to the Bete Desta home.
