Livingstone Christian Center Church

About this partner

The LCC church's 5-person missions team goes throughout the city once per week sharing the Gospel, identifying children in need, praying for them, and inviting the most vulnerable to receive support.

Through local church donations, the church is currently helping 20 children combat malnutrition through food support. Thanks to sponsorship through Hope Story supporters, 100 children from poor families have been identified to receive registration in school. For approximately 60% of these children, this will be the first time they have ever had the opportunity to attend a school. These programs will continue to grow.

LCC also operates a 'Little Reader Program' designed to develop the reading skills for at-risk children struggling in school. The children are also introduced to the Gospel through the program.

Current Projects

Little Reader Program

Lead by a local public-school teacher, her husband, and a group of volunteers from the church, approximately 50 children receive one-one-one reading support each week in four locations throughout the city through a two hour program that runs three days a week. The primary location is the church pastor's house. This program prioritizes vulnerable children that are falling behind in their reading abilities. With up to 100 children in each class in the public schools, many of these children are simply not receiving the support they need to learn to read.

School Fee Support for Impoverished Families

The Church is now supporting 100 impoverished children with school fee support. About 40 of these are going to school but struggling as a family, and suffering as a family to afford tuition. The other 60 children have not been attending school at all and will be attending for the first time.
