Our children's programs are designed to equip students in the church neighborhoods to perform well in school, have a nutritious and balanced diet, stay healthy and learn about Jesus Christ. When we first entered the communities to begin the programs, POI staff interviewed all the families to identify at risk children. The staff chose students who were the most underdeveloped, malnourished and neglected in the neighborhood. Once enrolled in the program, the children receive the following benefits:
- Medical examination to assess health needs; any medical assistance or treatment the child may require while in the program; free exams and treatment for the child's family
- A daily, balanced meal based on the doctor's examination of the child to counter malnourishment
- After-school tutoring in subjects like math and grammar by on-staff teachers
- Bible stories and knowledge of the saving gospel of Jesus Christ
It only takes $38 a month to sponsor a child in our program. With this money, you provide all these benefits to a child whose family lives on about $3 a day. You can sponsor a child today!
