Kony 2012--Capture him now
When someone abducts 30,000 children and forces them to commit unthinkable atrocities against their own families in order to survive, how soon should he be forgotten? We at Every Child Ministries think not so quickly. We agree with the Invisible Children organization that he needs to be captured and brought to justice. But why does it have be this year?...Read more...
Fighting Child Trafficking at the Source (Preventing Child Trafficking)
How many times do people have to fall over a cliff before we build a guard rail at the top? This is the question we’ve been asking ourselves about the problems of children in Ghana. We noticed many trafficked & street children were from one area. Repeatedly we have found that kids that ended up on the streets originated in....Read more.....

The Joys of Child Sponsorship
Sponsoring a child is SO SATISFYING. Imagine how good you will feel knowing that your gifts are rescuing a child from a desperate situation like a life of wandering the streets or slavery in an idol shrine. Imagine how much more you will enjoy what you have, knowing that you first shared with some of the neediest ones of the world. Read more....
New Hope for Africa's Street Children
In the southern Volta Region of Ghana, and in southern Togo and Benin, thousands of young girls are held as slaves in unspeakable conditions, victims of a vicious form of modern-day slavery--ritual abuse in idol shrines.

Families Restored in Congo, Bring Their Kids Home from Streets
In DR Congo parents have been stirred to go out to the streets and try to bring their children back home after viewing skits put on by street youth, sponsored by Every Child Ministries. It has sometimes required some serious searching, but the parents have ended up finding their children! It has sometimes taken some begging on the parents’ part, for relations were not happy when the children left. But in many cases, they have ended up finding their children and bringing them back home. Families are being restored! Read more... Helping African children survive the womb
Many African women have suffered horrendously from abortion. Often the full import of the decision to abort their child is not explained well to the women. So-called reproductive rights organizations tend to talk of abortion lightly, as if it were just a simple "procedure". They tend to ignore even the possibility that .... Read more....

The sack or mat on which these street children sleep is their only bed and their only protection from the cold, damp ground. During the day, they hide it and hope it will not be stolen before nightfall. Some, living with their homeless mothers, sleep under "tents" made by stringing up a sheet of plastic from the front of a store after closing hours....

At Every Child Ministries, a Christian mission for the forgotten children of Africa, we understand that albino children are valued and loved by God. Like EVERY CHILD, they are valued because they are created in the image of God. These children are often ostracized, sometimes ridiculed, neglected, despised. That's why ECM is establishing a program to reach out to them. ECM is showing them God's love in a very practical way--by ...

ECM's Anti-slavery initiative is fighting to eliminate these harmful practices, to free & to rehabilitate the captives.
