Since 2012 one of the Children’s Gift Ministry’s outreaches called the “CGM Backpack Program,” to date has reached over 90,000 children and focuses on getting children off of the streets, out of the reach of gangs, and into school.
The tagline for this outreach is, “Changing a Nation through Education.” This program is rescuing children and youth and stopping the cycle of gang violence in what has been called “The Murder Capital of the World.” Government school is free, but school supplies are required to attend and many families and single mothers cannot afford them. Children who cannot attend school are then easy victims for street gangs who use them to hooked on and move their drugs, as well as to commit extortion and murder.
Please take the CGM Backpack Challenge and see how many children your group can reach!
