About Child Development
Every day throughout Africa millions of innocent children are the unfortunate victims of violence, war, poverty, illiteracy, malnourishment and tragic diseases like HIV/AIDS.
NCM-Africa is actively responding to the crisis an reaching out to children in need on a continuous basis. Through our tireless work across the African continent, we are positively influencing the lives of more than 1 million children in 36 African countries on daily basis. We are challenged to make a difference in the lives of these children who in turn can make a difference for Africa. Some of our programs include:
Vulnerable and hopeless children need to know the love of Christ. We train and equip the local churches to give spiritual support to these children.
We support feeding programs and teach children gardening skills so that they can produce their own food. Currently we are providing thousands of children with daily rations of nutritious food.
Promoting educational opportunities for thousands of vulnerable children and helping dozens of schools to improve their facilities, equipment and teacher training.
Many of Africa’s children live in extreme healthrisk areas. Child Development runs an effective de-worming program for these children and basic education on hygiene and first aid is also provided.
NCM-Africa is currently ministering to more than 25,000 AIDS orphans in Africa. This program focusses on children understanding the impact of HIV/AIDS. We also support orphaned children suffering the loss of their parents through civil conflict.
