We believe the answer to Africa’s challenges is healthy local churches engaging their communities. Africa’s Children is committed to strategically investing in and partnering with local churches to meet the needs of children.
The numbers representing the needs of children in Africa are overwhelming and paralyzing. If we think it is up to us to meet every need we will probably do nothing. But what if we were to be a part of something bigger? What if we were a part of encouraging every church, in every country to be actively involved in outreach and discipleship to every child in their community?
Conservative estimates put the number of children in Africa over 400 million, almost the size of the entire U.S. population. That’s an overwhelming, potentially paralyzing number. There is another number that we need to consider. There are currently 80,000 Assemblies of God churches across Africa. If we look at 400 million through the potential of 80,000 churches in communities all over Africa, suddenly those scary numbers begin to shrink considerably.
That’s what Africa’s Children is all about. It’s about harnessing the potential of the African church to reach children. It’s about everyone doing something to see a huge change. An Africa where every child has experienced the love of Christ and chosen to follow Him is an impossible dream if we think it is all up to one church or one organization. But if we work together, each of us doing something, with God’s help the impossible dream isn’t so impossible anymore.
