World Challenge partners around the world but particularly in Central Asia are working to make children safe at home despite the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Chances are good that if you’re a parent, you can quote Ephesians 6:1-3 by heart. “Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. ‘Honor your father and mother’ (this is the first commandment with a promise), ‘that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land.’”

You Can Be the Love That Changes a Child's Life

Father’s Love ministers to children from low-income, often single parent households. Today, they share their heart for the work and how God is redeeming the next generation.

Showing the Father's Love to At-Risk Children

Recent studies have found that nearly 19 million children in the US are growing up with only one parent, and that over one fourth of these single parents are wrestling with poverty. Today, we’re joined by guests from Father’s Love, a ministry who work primarily with children from low-income, single-parent homes. They are following a great calling to help families connect with each other and God.

From a fatherless street kid to father-figure for refugee children, one man tells about God's incredible work in his life and in Lebanon.

Muhammad’s father died when he was young, and he grew up more or less on Beirut’s streets. His mother sent him to a nearby church’s Sunday school in hopes that it would keep him out of trouble.

In the Philippines, church workers are helping educate pregnant women about how to keep themselves and their babies healthy.

Pregnancy usually means extra doctor visits to make sure the mother and baby stay healthy.

Some women, however, don’t have this option because either they live in a remote village or it’s not traditional practice. They often don’t realize the many health benefits that preventative care can offer both them and their child.

Local churches, nonprofits and businesses have joined forces with their school district to help underprivileged students with spectacular results.

A few years ago, the Federal Department of Education found that 94 percent of teachers pay for classroom materials or students’ supplies out of their own pocket.

On average, these teachers spent around $480 with some footing a bill as large as $1,000 for school necessities.
