Big Plans for 2021! January 21, 2021
Wow, what a year it’s been! Like me, I’m sure many of you were happy to see 2020 come to an end. The pandemic affected humanity in ways never before experienced. Through it all, God remained on the throne. What a comfort it is to know that His sovereignty is unshakeable. We prayed in 2020, a lot! And you know what? God answered those prayers. All of us at Childcare Worldwide saw Him act with amazing love over the past 12 months.
Celebrating 2020 January 13, 2021

Our supporters around the world stepped up in a big way, despite the economic effects of COVID-19, to ensure our kids were still well cared for, and God provided the opportunities we needed to continue sharing the Gospel and helping children thrive.

Ministry During a Global Lockdown May 14, 2020
If you listen to the news, it would seem that the only places affected by the pandemic are the US and Europe. We know that’s not true – here at Childcare Worldwide we can attest to the ravaging effects of Covid-19 in the rest of the world, particularly the countries we work in.

Mosquito Monsters October 4, 2019
For something so small, they cause a lot of damage.

Malaria is a big problem for developing countries, and it’s one we can’t afford to ignore. Here’s why:

Against all Odds September 30, 2019
In Uganda, I recently met an amazing young woman. Her name is Allen, and despite so many challenges, she’s built a beautiful life for herself.
Allen was born in a poor village in Uganda. She is also deaf. When her parents realized she couldn’t hear, they decided they didn’t want her. Thankfully, a kind neighbor woman who had no children of her own decided to take care of Allen. This neighbor is the only family Allen has.
Her new mom was very poor. She could provide Allen with some food and a place to sleep, but not much else. As a young child, Allen communicated entirely by miming. There was no money for school or tutors who could unlock the world of sign language for her. (more…)
