Welcome! We're Childcare Worldwide.

  • WE BELIEVE...

    • The Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative word of God.

    • That there is only one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

    • In the deity and humanity of Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, His present rule as Head of the Church and in His personal return in power and glory.

    • That for the salvation of lost and sinful men, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.

    • In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling, the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.

    • In the resurrection of both the saved and the lost. They that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of condemnation.

    • In the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, with equality across racial, gender and class differences.

Our mission is to transform children’s lives by sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with them, providing for their physical needs, and supporting their long-term education. 
Childcare Worldwide was founded in 1981 by Max and Marlies Lange and has grown to sponsoring children in Africa, Asia, and South America. Our generous sponsors partner with us to connect children in need to Life Centers in their communities, led by in-country teachers and church workers, who lead Bible lessons, teach worship songs, play Scripture memory games, and share the hope of the Gospel.

“I am in awe of how God has led this ministry and where He is leading us next. Every dollar that you entrust to our mission goes toward making a difference in a child’s life.”
- Bill Nienhuis, President, Childcare Worldwide

Where the Need is Great

With our sponsors' help, we provide care and support to impoverished children in Peru, Uganda, Sri Lanka, India, Thailand, and Kenya.

Life Centers Change Lives

The core of Childcare Worldwide’s impact are our Life Centers, located in the center of communities and hosted by a local church. Life Centers provide children with an opportunity to hear the Gospel, learn about Christ’s redemptive love, and trust Him as their Savior. They also receive nutritious food, clean drinking water, medicine, and school supplies. As we remove barriers of their physical need and provide support for their education, children can grow spiritually and physically into thriving young adults.

Why We Care

Poverty and hardship are ever-present in the world and impact children the hardest, creating great physical and spiritual need. But we know that Jesus is the hope the world needs, and meeting physical needs is a tangible, helpful way to help people in need and share the Gospel with them.
