Our 2023/2024 EAP program is now primarily focused on enrolling children into Christian-run schools and education programs to ensure they not only get a good education, but learn about Jesus too!
Access to education is a big problem affecting Syrian refugee children. The UN estimates that barely half of all refugee kids are in primary schools, and less than 25% of teenagers attend middle/high schools.
We know kids that didn't go to school for almost 5 years but wished they could. They want to learn, and escape the drudgery of refugee life spent waiting for the war in Syria to end.
To address this problem, we help Syrian refugees (and a few local children from poor families) go to Christian-run schools by covering the monthly costs of tuition at each program.
We aren't able to do it alone though. We are thankful to God for the many people that committed to sponsor these children over the years, and we are hopeful for more sponsors to commit.
- A sponsor is asked to pray regularly for the child.
- To commit to provide up to $100 a month for school tuition costs (it can vary per child)
- To write a letter to the child once a school year. The child writes back too. (This is optional if you don't have the time to write!)
If you want to help by sponsoring a child monthly this can enable one more child to enter the EAP program, go to school, and hear the Gospel. Contact us to be assigned a child to sponsor. We have many waiting!
We are an all-volunteer relief group helping refugees because we believe this is what God wants us to do. All donations for projects like this go 100% to help the refugees who need it most and not towards our own organization's administrative costs or covering a staff payroll.
We are a registered 501c3. You can find us on GuideStar as well to validate our status.
