Project Details

  • Project Description:

    In poor urban communities and rural villages throughout East Asia, children have few safe places to go after school and on weekends. Parents are busy working, and grandparents or other relatives are often unable to help. Many of these villages have a neglected, unused community center.

    Local believers help bring these centers to life, creating a safe place where kids from preschool through 6th grade can come after school and on weekends to receive free tutoring and take part in free English, art, and music classes. By caring for the children the center and it's workers earn the trust and respect of parents and community leaders.

    This outreach enables local believers to share their lives with the community in order to share the gospel, start small groups, and plant indigenous community churches. Your gift will provide resources to host community center programs in multiple communities throughout the year.

  • Cultural Information:

    East Asia culture greatly values family and education. Providing community centers to meet the needs of children is a positive step to an open door for the gospel.
