EDUCATING, EQUPPING AND EMPOWERING ONE FAMILY AT A TIME.

Over a span of 18 years, the Family Support Program has had coverage of 200+ children thereby touching the lives of close to 100+ families. By 2020, 20 children who came from families where the highest level of education was 7th standard finished their 12th standard. We have had success stories of children from the programme who went on to work for Big IT giants in the city as well.

 

James 1:27 “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after the fatherless and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”

K-Family Support's focus is on widows, single moms, and their children. 

Your gift of 60 dollars a month will pay for your sponsor child’s school fees, uniforms, books, medical needs, and much more.  It ensures that your sponsored child will never have to be placed in an institution, children’s home or orphanage.  It also guarantees opportunities for his/her mother as well as the whole family and their entire community!

We’ve seen many kids go on to be the very first in their entire extended family to graduate, and break the cycle of poverty forever! Pray about sponsoring one child or even an entire family!
