Every Child Ministries is devoted to showing Jesus' love and bringing God's Word to African youth. Main ministries are: ministry to homeless street kids, Christian residential home and school, training leaders and teachers to enable African churches to establish Sunday schools, development of Teachers' Resource Libraries, helping kids with albinism and disabilities and working for their acceptance in society, working to combat and prevent child trafficking, Christian leadership training, teacher training, and ministry to children in slums and war-affected areas. Many programs are supported through child sponsorship, and we have now begun family sponsorships. The work is centered in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ghana, and Uganda. A website features Christian education materials aimed to provide help to all of Africa.

Children found in vulnerable situations are rescued before being placed in one of our projects for ongoing help,evangelism, and discipleship. Our staff in both Uganda and Ghana are trained to spot abandoned & vulnerable children that may need help. Give to the Rescue Fund so we have funds on hand when a rescue is needed.
Help children living in Kamwokya, a downtown slum area in the capital city of Kampala. Sponsor a child in this Hope Center to provide schooling and support through a weekly Bible club, or support the project to benefit all the children in the Hope Center.
In Uganda, as in many African countries, children with albinism are often considered a curse. Every Child Ministries is showing them God's love in very practical ways, by providing school and public assemblies on albinism to further public understanding and acceptance, and by placing needy children with albinism in sponsorship programs where they experience friendship & acceptance. The Gospel permeates all these programs.
Haven of Hope Academy is a Christian school, nursery through Primary 8, Day and Boarding, that targets children at risk in Ghana, West Africa. The operating expenses of Haven Academy are basically met through educational sponsorships. Each child who receives a scholarship needs one educational sponsor at $37/month. This covers uniforms, books, teachers' salaries and benefits, classroom supplies, governmental relations, and incidentals. Donations to the Haven of Hope Academy Gap Fund cover un
One of the highlights of Every Child Ministries was receiving word that ECM training had enabled local churches to establish over 5,000 known Sunday schools in Central Africa. We are in need of funds to train more teachers. It costs only about $64 for training to establish one Sunday school.
Child sacrifice and ritual abuse is on the rise in Uganda. ECM is working with stakeholders to discern the causes and to prepare skits for public performance that can help parents protect their children. The project also gives spiritual, emotional and material support to survivors of ritual abuse, including those in our Lwengo Sponsorship Hope Center.
The Volta Region in S.E.Ghana, like many rural areas in Africa, is full of schools willing & even anxious to allow gospel presentations. ECM's Community Evangelism program reaches out to these schools & the communities they serve with the gospel, presented via film media and personal evangelism. Our staff makes frequent visits to local schools & churches, and conducts follow up discipleship as needed. Your support of this project enables the good news to reach thousands of children every year!
The Sogakope Hope Center helps kids in a community filled with ritual servitude. Sogakope, in the Volta Region of Ghana, had and continues to have, women enslaved at local shrines. Our work helping numerous women obtain freedom from this bondage, led to our work evangelizing in the community, which led to the start of this Hope Center for child sponsorship.
Haven of Hope Children's Home is our boarding home in Ghana for orphan & vulnerable children from various backgrounds. Sponsor a child to live at Haven of Hope or give to Haven of Hope Operations to help defray the cost of operations - food, clothing, qualified staff, etc.
In Africa, a child born with a disability is at an extreme disadvantage, as most families don’t have the means to properly care for the child’s special needs. At ECM we have chosen to focus on God’s ability to restore hope in the lives of these children, and not on their disability. We work to improve quality of life by covering the cost of life-changing surgeries and other medical expenses, and providing medical equipment such as wheelchairs or walkers, physical therapy, and respite care for pa
Medical needs abound in Africa, as they do in so many places around the world. From eye exams and eyeglasses to surgeries, medical equipment, and even nutritional supplements, ECM strives to provide these physical needs to show the love of Jesus in practical ways. This is often done through one-to-three-day medical camps set up in a village or community, but sometimes ECM is made aware of a need that requires care as quickly as possible. When funds are already available, we can meet these nee
When children get to secondary level in school, we help them decide what the best option is for them. That could be vocational school, finishing high school and going on to university, starting a business, or just completing high school. Secondary costs are much higher than primary, and sometimes child sponsors cannot cover the entire cost of their sponsored child's secondary education. Help kids transition from sponsorship to independence by giving to the Next Step fund.
Take the opportunity to change a child's life through sponsorship. Sponsoring a child assures an appropriate education, improved nutrition, and opportunities to learn about Jesus and His salvation, for only $37 a month. Our Sponsorship Gap fund in Ghana and Uganda provide temporary help for those in crisis situations, until a continuing sponsor can be found. Contact us for more info on our Gap Funds.
The Biriwa Hope Center helps stop child trafficking at the source. Biriwa is a known location for child trafficking. A sponsored child almost never gets trafficked. Provide education as well as spiritual discipleship to a child's life.
Every Child Ministries' Hope Fund is our Where Needed Most Fund. This fund supplements all our specific funds when they are short, ensuring that all our programs and projects can meet their budgets. Giving to The Hope Fund brings the flexibility to use funds where they can best help!
ECM's survey of Kinshasa churches showed that fewer than half had any program to attract and train children's workers. ECM has a long history of providing effective training for children's workers in Africa. We need funds to provide much-needed training for children's leaders in Congo, enabling many churches to start programs to reach the children and youth of their areas. In many areas, we can train a teacher and enable a church to start a children's program for about $64.
ECM started the Gayaza project because we wanted to do something for the kids right under our noses.  The kids in the Gayaza project all live right around the former location of ECM's Uganda Headquarters.  Gayaza is a suburb of Kampala or a town very near Kampala, the capital of Uganda, on the northwest side.  This district is home to many orphans, including many AIDS orphans and children who are themselves HIV positive.
Kamwokya (pronounced kuh-moh-chuh) is a downtown slum area in Kampala, Uganda, and is home to many ethnic populations including refugees who moved from the north when Joseph Kony’s LRA bands were terrifying the countryside. In Kamwokya, ECM helps vulnerable children, including those with albinism, stay in school or receive vocational training through child sponsorship, seeking to reach these children and youth with the Gospel and to help provide developmental opportunities for them. Some familie
Tororo, in the Eastern Region of Uganda, is the location of one of our sponsorship Hope Centers that began with children with albinism. We strive to educate the children, their families, and the community about albinism. Sponsorship sends a child to school and a weekly Bible club. Once children with albinism in the area are sponsored, we want the Hope Center to expand to other children in the area. Sponsor a child ($37/month) or support the Hope Center for the benefit of all the children in
Child sponsorship is an incredibly effective tool for improving the lives of vulnerable children, but it does not come without limitations. One alternative that combats some of these limitations is our Family Empowerment Program. Family Empowerment provides education, guidance, spiritual mentoring, training, medical help, and employment opportunities for entire families, not just one or two children. When an entire family is sponsored, sponsors develop relationships with the parents as well as
Orphans near the town of Gulu are living in abject poverty in Northern Uganda. This is home to about 20,000 people. Since the end of the war, the area now blooms with well-kept gardens, all dug by hand with hoes. The children are in serious trouble. Only a small percentage of families can afford to send their children to school, even though education is free in Uganda. They cannot afford even the required cost of uniforms & school supplies. We have worked closely with the local primary sch
Karamoja is a region in the northeastern corner of Uganda, a land of pastoralists and devastating poverty. Karimojong children are sold to masters to use them to beg on the streets of Kampala, taking all their earnings and treating them as slaves. This Hope Center evangelizes and intervenes on behalf of child beggars displaced to Kampala, placing them in boarding schools during the school year to keep them off the street.
Karamoja is a region in the northeastern corner of Uganda, a land of pastoralists and devastating poverty. Karimojong children are sold to masters to use them to beg on the streets of Kampala, taking all their earnings and treating them as slaves. We are decreasing the number going into slavery by offering child sponsorship in their home area.
In Naigobya, we are using village schools as an avenue for reaching out to communities with the love of Jesus.  Through the school we can reach out not only to the teachers and students, but also to the church, the parents, the orphans, village leadership, and ultimately the entire community. Our vision is to develop a Christ-centered, self-sustaining community where multiple generations thrive by living life together.  Our mission is to provide spiritual development & community empowerment.
We sometimes take clear, healthy water for granted. But in many places in Africa, that is not the case. If a well is not near, the choice may be drinking dirty, contaminated water or walking miles to the nearest well and carrying heavy jugs of water back to your home. ECM has provided training for some of our staff to drill wells, whenever possible, but also hires companies that specialize in the work to drill a well in a community. Either way provides much needed clean water that numerous c
In Koforidua, Ghana, ECM has long had a ministry to teen street boys called load porters. These boys are hired to carry people's belongings from downtown shops to their vehicles or homes. They often live on the street and meet together with ECM staff on Sunday mornings to worship. ECM has recently implemented a Saturday Bible Club like we have at our Child Sponsorship Hope Centers. At Saturday Bible Club, Bible lessons are taught, as well as other things like hygiene and life skills. Spiritual g
