Mission Statement

To help hurting kids in difficult places of the world transform into young adults who are healthy, educated, and self-sufficient disciples of Christ.

Description

Our mission is to change the world for hurting and forgotten children by giving them hope in the love of Jesus Christ.

We do this by taking humanitarian and spiritual aid into the hard places where war, natural disasters and disease epidemics have devastated societies. These children in hard places know horrors most of our children have never even heard of. Food, shelter, medicine and education are not enough to heal their emotions. Many have been sexually abused or beaten. They need hope. Hope’s name is Jesus! Our work currently focuses heavily on Swaziland, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, and South Africa, and efforts are also underway in Vietnam and the Philippines.

It takes a comprehensive approach to caring for orphans and vulnerable children (OVC), and we do this by treating the whole child. Most of this is done for the children through our network of CarePoints. And a CarePoint is a what its name implies: a point of care. It can be set up with as little investment as a tent and some pots and bowls. When it is matured, in its most effective state, it is a central point for carrying out the many care-giving and developmental programs that Children’s Cup has proven that make a difference in a child’s life forever.

Most have heard of "the cycle of poverty" - the downward spiral of self-perpetuating poverty that is destroying so many lives in Africa and other hard places in the world. Our strategy is a different kind of cycle. It starts with rescuing children who are in desperate situations - whether orphan-headed households, abject poverty, hunger, extreme vulnerability and abuse or other heart-wrenching hopelessness.

Through a network of CarePoints the children are able to find hope. A CarePoint is simply what its name says - a point of care. They are places where we feed the children, give them medical care, provide education for them. Bible clubs, kids camps, outreach opportunities... all part of what goes on through our network of Children’s Cup CarePoints.
