You can play a significant role in keeping a child in a family unit through our monthly sponsorship program. Your sponsorship will help the staff of Life For Children Ministry provide school fees and uniforms, educational books and additional tutoring, healthcare, nutritional supplement, and Christian discipleship for your sponsored child. The staff keeps a close relationship with the child’s parent or guardian by making home visits and providing peer groups Bible study and fellowship gatherings where they can discuss personal challenges they may be facing. The staff will also visit the child’s school to meet with the teachers and help identify ways the child can have the best chance at success. Life For Children Ministry will follow each child in our program from the time he/she enters the program all the way through University or vocational school.
