SummaryThis project seeks to raise $95,000 for start-up costs the first year, and then $44,500 annually in order to provide care for vulnerable children living in the streets of Goma in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
DescriptionThis project will provide the funding needed to support, train, and disciple vulnerable children living in the streets of Goma. The project will be implemented in full-time, three month sessions; the children will receive short-term relief (food, clothing and medical care) alongside trauma counseling, education, and life-skills training. The longer-term goal is to help the children return to, and be accepted by their families, extended families or foster families.

Prayer RequestsPray that the children being reintegrated will have an influence on other street children of Goma. Pray that God will transform them to be models of change and encourage others to enter the program. Pray that successful reintegration into society will have a transforming effect on their families and the greater population of Goma.
