A group of smiling children together.

Real change begins with a real relationship.

In North America we often take many things for granted including an education with adequate school supplies and books, clean drinking water, health check-ups, opportunities for engaging in sports and so on…

Of course we do, but let's not also overlook the fact that, in the middle of our everyday routines, we are able to make a very real and lasting impact in the lives of children and families in the developing world by sponsoring a child.


It's NOT just a catch-phrase – You CAN make a difference.


The child, and the child's community benefits directly from the financial help you offer. The funds provide essentials to live, and tools needed to help forge a brighter future. And, just as important, the personal connection with you - the sponsor - gives them what they need most. Hope.


You benefit too.  There is something powerful, something supernatural, about the words of Jesus when He said "It is better to give than to receive." When we give of what we have, and see the joy and hope it provides, WE end up feeling blessed. Why? Because, in Christ, this is an important part of our purpose.​

Holistic child development.jpg

The NCM 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.

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.

In Malawi NCM Canada funded 5 church buildings in Malawi that are being also used as Child Development Centres and funded wells at 4 of these churches. 

In Bangladesh, NCM Canada has funded over 60 church buildings which also serve as Child Development Centres and centres of compassionate ministries to the surrounding communities.

As the video (above) describes, these Child Development Centres typically serve 75-100 children each and function the same as the program funded by child sponsorship (above) providing education and / or after school tutoring, health check-ups for children, school books and uniforms, teachers supplies, sports equipment etc.
