Invest in the Future of a Child
Holistic Child Development Ministries is a compassionate way the Church of the Nazarene is improving the lives of thousands of children and their families. Child Development Centers (CDCs) offer children hope and a chance of breaking out of the cycle of poverty and exploitation that has enchained their families for generations. But development is only successful in effecting lasting transformation if it is holistic. That’s why the CDCs address all aspects of the children’s development: physical, cognitive, social, mental, and spiritual.
In some CDCs, children receive nutritional support through at least one meal every day. But more importantly, mothers learn how to prepare nutritious meals with locally available food, and receive seeds and training to plant their own home gardens. In self-help groups, mothers learn to start small businesses with their savings, which often substantially raise the family income.
Child Development Centers do much more than serve the children: they transform their families and entire communities. The CDCs are started in full cooperation with the community, so that they are locally owned and relevant, and are structured to achieve self-support within approximately five years. One CDC ministers to an average of 75 children. You can support an entire center or individual children. Your gift will help transform South Asia! (This is NOT the regular NCM Child Sponsorship!).
