Each year, Africa New Life registers 50 especially vulnerable children into the Dream Kids program, which was established in 2010. These children begin attending school and benefit from a year of tutoring to help them catch up with their peers. They also receive the following during their year in the program:
- Biblical training in Christ’s word and spiritual nurturing and discipleship
- Strong relationships with students’ families/guardians and schools, helping ensure they are progressing and thriving
- Consistent nutrition through lunches on school days
- VBS programs and other fun, engaging activities that allow for spiritual growth and physical exercise
We believe that this extra year of specialized support and nurturing helps build a strong structure for success for these young lives as they continue their personal and academic journeys. At the end of their year in the program, the Dream Kids move into our regular sponsorship program, where their school fees, academic materials, access to medical care, and more are covered through individual sponsors’ support.
