Every Child Ministry is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing hope to the forgotten children of Africa. While ECM seeks to help all African children, the organiztion places special emphasis on street children, orphans and abandoned children, trafficked and slave children, children displaced through war, prostituted children, children in prison, children with albinism and other at risk groups. To do this, ECM trains teachers and leaders for children and youths and seeks to encourage, empower, and provide resources for African Churches, to evangelize and disciple the new generation of their continent for Jesus Christ.
The ultimate goals of the organization are to demonstrate the value of every child as created in the image of God, to show the love of Jesus Christ for every child in tangible, practical ways, and to provide every African child with an opportunity to make a life changing decision for Jesus by accepting Him as Savior and following Him as Lord. this opportunity is offered without coercion and all help programs are open to all without reference to religious affiliation or ethnic heritage.
Haven of Hope - Ghana. A long term home that provides a safe haven for chidlren rescued from desperate, dangerous and debilitating situations. Haven of Hope is now home to 48 children aged 2 to 18 yrs. Of these, most were formely homeless street children, some were children from devastating situations brought to the ministry by the Ghana Social Welfare Department. Others were victims of ritual servitude in traditional shrines and some victims of child trafficking.
Intercross is supporting the Ghana child trafficking rescue mission currently running at Every Child Ministry. But there are so many other areas which do need aid, and we pray that we eventually will widen our span of support for Every Child Ministry.
ECM's programs for street children consist of bible teaching, friendship, evangelism, counseling, direct aid for basic needs, hot meals once or twice a week and in some locations, literacy, sports and gardening. There is so much more to learn about Every Child Ministry.
