More than a picture

Behind every picture is a child with big dreams for their future!

Poverty robs children of the opportunity to achieve their God-given dreams and reach their fullest potential. But from $56 a month, you can sponsor a child and help provide them with an education, medical care, nutritional support, and a loving, Christ-focused environment so their dreams can become a reality.
