Featured Stories - These featured stories from the developing world highlight the countries and communities we work in. The stories feature the children and families we serve and the churches we partner with. The vast majority of the stories are written by our local country staff.

The stories we feature on this page focus on the challenges in fighting extreme poverty in Africa, Asia, South America, Central American and the Caribbean as well as the needs of people living in abject global poverty. The featured stories promote our programs and the application of our Christian holistic child development model as a solution to release children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty.
