There are nearly two billion children in the world. Millions of children live in extreme poverty and are perishing from malnutrition and other preventable causes. Children are victims of war, abuse, and neglect. They are affected by HIV and AIDS, and they live in inadequate living conditions. Many children lose hope as they struggle to survive.
“Many things can wait; children cannot. Today, their bones are being formed, their blood is being made, their senses are being developed. To them we cannot say ‘tomorrow.’ Their name is ‘today.’”
- Gabriela Mistral, poet
Nazarene Compassionate Ministries’ Child Development program recognizes the importance of children and believes that a child’s development is a process of realizing the full potential of human life as God intended it to be. NCM Child Development helps children understand that God loves them, that they are created in God’s image, that they are valued and have dignity, and that they can have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Through our holistic approach to child development, children have the opportunity to receive food, education, life skills, and spiritual guidance.
NCM Child Development Centers are committed to work with families and with the community to help children achieve and develop their God-given potential, and become positive influences and healthy adults.
The time to invest in their lives is today!
