Often young people are the most spiritually receptive in the community. Working with them, through homework clubs, feeding programmes and outreach to street children, can build a strong foundation for a church-planting and discipling ministry.
An infant with AIDS is lovingly cared for during her final days on earth.
A street boy in Ulaanbaatar gets another chance because he is not treated as a thief, but as a child of God.
For the first time in their lives, children of prisoners in South America are singled out, not for shame or discrimination, but to shower them with the love of Jesus and to ensure their access to education.
SIM is deeply concerned for children around the world. From AIDS orphans to child brides, from street children to university students, all children long to feel the love of Jesus expressed to them through personal relationships with mature, caring adults. SIM and its local partners are reaching out to meet the needs of young people.
Concern for family, church and community
SIM is not only concerned with the mind, body and spirit of each child, we are also deeply interested in the context of family, church and community surrounding each one.
For example, it is not enough to provide ante-natal care to mothers in India, but teaching them to read will empower both them and their unborn children for years to come.
SIM is deeply concerned about education on many levels. Church leaders work together with SIM education specialists to develop Christian curricula and programmes to ensure that upcoming generations will learn to love God and His Word.
No matter what area of ministry your heart loves — teaching, health-care, media, even administration — you will encounter children and young people everywhere you turn.
Jesus said, 'Let the little children come to me' Luke18:16
