World Evangelical Alliance General Assembly 2019
As a Christian organisation we believe God created everyone in His image and that every person and child has the right to a full life. So, we serve children in vulnerable areas as a God-given responsibility as well as an expression of God’s perfect love that we have experienced. We see poverty and need as a result of broken relationship both between man and nature; hence, our work is focussed on restoring these relationships that keep children from their full potential. We are co-workers with God and other partners and collaborators of faith and none, letting Him use us to fulfil his purpose for the world.
We understand ourselves as a part of the Church with a particular calling and ministry to serve the world’s most vulnerable children and the poor in the name of Jesus Christ. Our work calls us to work with local churches where we serve and we seek positive relationships with forms and levels of the church locally, nationally, regionally, and globally.
Some of our work with the church includes implementing approaches to children’s spiritual nurture that contribute to children’s well-being in our programming and our holistic understanding of human development; partnering with faith leaders and communities to correct adverse social norms that impact the most vulnerable; equipping our leaders and staff to live out our faith so they can more effectively support fullness of life for the world's most vulnerable children; and integration of faith in our ministry practice to tackle the roots of poverty, vulnerability and injustice.
