Global Child Development Fund

You can change a child's life.
Project Information

Children are disproportionately impacted by poverty, which can stunt growth, hinder education, and make them more susceptible to illness and disease. Poverty is more than a lack of money; it is the deprivation of access to good health, education, and choice. Children living in poverty are forced into impossible situations—instead of going to school, they go to work too early, and instead of living healthy lives, they struggle with malnutrition.

  • More than half of those who live in poverty are children
  • One in three children is not growing well because of malnutrition, which includes both lack of access to proper nutrients as well as lack of access to healthy foods
  • An estimated 617 million children and adolescents globally are unable to reach minimum proficiency levels in reading or mathematics

Nazarene Compassionate Ministries’ child-focused programs are based on a Holistic Child Development model that seeks to simultaneously address key aspects of a child’s life—spiritual, physical, intellectual, emotional, and relational. Through this model, children gain skills and opportunities to interrupt the cycle of poverty, dream about their futures, experience God’s love in tangible ways, and grow into the people God created them to be.
