“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14
Experiences in early childhood truly shape a person’s future. The first weeks, months and years are the times when every human being’s cognitive, emotional and social foundations are formed. A baby who is hugged, comforted and stimulated has an essential advantage over those who are not. Children who are nurtured and well cared for are more likely to fully develop their learning and language, as well as emotional and social skills.
In our desire to “break the cycle of poverty” and honor Jesus’ commandment “to let the little children come to Him”, we are excited to communicate that our new Early Childhood Stimulation program is up and running!
Thank you to all of those who donated for the furniture, toys and supplies! Thank you to those who donate monthly for scholarships so the neediest of children can attend! They are blossoming before our eyes! If you would like to participate in providing a $50/mo scholarship for a little one who could not attend without help, please send us an email!
It is not only a homerun for the child, but the young moms learn how to become a more attentive, skillful and loving Mom also! AND…Just recently a new Bible study was started with some of these moms! PRAISE!
