Children of the Nations seek to provide holistic, Christ-centered care for orphaned and destitute children, enabling them to create positive and lasting change in their nations.

By partnering with nationals in each of the countries we serve, we care for children from infancy to adulthood. We want each child to reach their full potential. We believe that in order to raise healthy, well-rounded children, you must care for the whole child:

  • Physical: nutritional food, vitamin supplements, medical and dental care, and sports programs emphasizing physical fitness.
  • Educational: quality education (preschool through university), skills training for those geared toward vocational careers, and a Challenge Children’s program for children with special needs.
  • Social: children raised in their own country and culture with caregivers from their own culture, visits (for orphaned children) with relatives or extended families, celebration and education of traditional ethnic music, dance, storytelling and dress.  
  • Spiritual Needs: Biblical training, evangelistic activities, outreaches (such as summer camps and youth retreats), scripture memory, devotionals, worship, and discipleship.
