Global Ideas for VBS, Camps, and other Summer Activities with Children and Youth

DSCN2260.JPGGlobal Ministries works in collaboration with global partners to provide food, healthcare, clothing, and in some cases housing, school fees, uniform, books and training, and livelihood opportunities to many children in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, the Middle East and Europe. Below are five global partners who are providing life-giving ministries for Children and Youth that you can support as a way to engage and participate in God's global mission. 

All financial gifts for projects are sent in their entirety for the designated purpose to our global partners. No administrative fees are taken from gifts to Global Ministries because of the faithful giving from our churches to Our Church's Wider Mission and the Disciples Mission Fund.

Financial gifts are the most helpful way to assist global partner churches and programs for youth, because financial gifts allow the partners to purchase what they need most, and shipping materials are often costly and problematic for receiving.  However, a few partners are able to accept material shipments. If you are interested in collecting and sending materials to global partners working with children, find out more here
