Our child sponsorship program is 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 learning opportunities and developmental interventions. Through this model, children are encouraged to grow into the people God created them to be.
Through NCM’s child sponsorship program, children are enrolled in a Holistic Child Development program that includes the following:
Spiritual Development: NCM partners with local churches to help children understand that God loves them, that they are created in God’s image, that they are valued and have God-given dignity, and that they can have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Physical Development: To ensure healthy physical and mental development, children gain supplemental nutrition, hygiene education, and preventative health care.
Intellectual Development: By providing tutoring, formal education, and life skills training, Holistic Child Development programs help children develop their minds and gain opportunities for future employment that will help them interrupt the cycle of poverty and will benefit them throughout their lives.
Emotional Development: As a result of poverty, hunger, natural disasters, war, and the HIV/AIDS pandemic, many children live with the scars of emotional trauma. Holistic Child Development programs enable children to heal and grow by connecting them with caring sponsors, counselors, and a local church family.
Relational Development: Through Holistic Child Development programs and the wisdom and love of committed sponsors and local leaders, children learn to work and play together, build lasting relationships, and love God and others.
NCM’s Holistic Child Development model also recognizes the importance of family and community in a child’s life, knowing that the best child development happens when children grow up in the context of a loving, healthy, empowered family. We are committed to working alongside families and communities to help children develop their God-given potential.
