One Child Matters is an international child development ministry helping to meet the physical and spiritual needs of children living in poverty. We empower children to reach their God-given potential by creating opportunities for transformational development: spirit, mind, and body. Through our development programs, children receive food, education, medical aid, and hope in Jesus Christ.
One person. That’s all it takes to change the world for a child in desperate need.
Sponsorship through One Child Matters connects caring individuals with children in poverty, to provide them the resources and opportunities they need to rise above their circumstances and reach their potential in Christ. In fact, recent research proves that one-to-one child sponsorship is one of the most effective ways to combat global poverty. Sponsorship allows us to address each major area of a child's life. There’s real power in one person reaching out to one child through sponsorship—power that changes both lives!
Children will have the opportunity to learn about God, His purpose for their life, and hope for the future.
Children get help with their studies and are taught problem-solving, leadership, literacy, numeracy, and other life skills.
The hope center provides nutritious food and supplements. Children also have access to medical check-ups and immunizations to fight common diseases.
Children are encouraged to socialize with others and instructed in sports, music, and drama. These activities, with special outings, will help them make and keep friends.
We are so grateful for the Lord’s provision and guidance over the past 50+ years of our ministry. Since its birth, One Child Matters has seen strong, healthy relationships built, children brought into freedom, and thousands of lives changed. We are looking forward to all that God has planned for us ahead!
