CORE PROGRAMES OF CHILDREN CARE DEVELOPMENT

Child Survival Program
Focuses on children under four (4) years of age who are vulnerable to preventable diseases like malaria, pneumonia, water born diseases, etc. It is designed to help children survive in their critical development years. Under this we intend to  mother child units with an overall goal of rescuing, nurturing, and disciplining mothers and their babies.

Child Sponsorship Program
It’s the most far reaching of the programs beginning with children under 3 and 9 years of age and work with them until maximum age of 22 years of age. A concerted effort is made to build a meaningful relationship between the child and the sponsor who is able to encourage and support the child in his or her long term development. The long term nature of the program creates an opportunity to more deeply address the holistic needs of the child. We now 10 children under their program with major goal of developing, disciplining, and equipping them for life.

Leadership Development Program
This will provides opportunity for a university education and intensive Religious leadership training for most gifted and service oriented graduates .
