Our vision is that the African church will become a good family to the street children and youths.
Our mission is to train missionaries who will become facilitators who go out and empower the local churches and communities to know how to run professional, sustainable programmes for street children.
We are also training existing missionaries who are working with vulnerable children in trauma and crisis care.
“Arise, cry out in the night, as the watches of the night begin, pour out your hearts like water in the presence of the Lord Lift up your hearts to Him for the lives of your children, who faint from hunger at every street corner” Lam 2 v 19
In Africa there are approximately 32 million street children (Up to 17 years old) and approximately 542 million Christians—that is 17 Christians for each child!
A Father to the Fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in His Holy Dwelling. Psalm 68 v 5
If children are living on the streets then they are fatherless even if their father is living. No father is taking care of them. As God is father to the fatherless so the church is family to the fatherless. The question is are we a good family or a bad family?
